New on the Catwalk
Emerging Fashion Labels
Simon Collins, the former director of Parsons School for Design in New York
They have completed their studies at Parsons, The New School for Design in New York, Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Central Saint Martins College in London or the Vantan Design Institute in Tokyo; they are the fashion designers of the future.
In this collection, Patrice Farameh presents thirty-eight international designers whose creations are displayed in stunning large-scale images. These young designers find inspiration from a wide range of sources, from antiquity to the Victorian era, to the sci-fi world in film, and much, much more. Their designs are exciting and reflect a time and society in which anything seems possible. Cool and classical, richly ornamented and elfish, sophisticated and body-conscious, the models file past in clothes that straddle the line between experimental and wearable.
Simon Collins, the former director of Parsons School for Design in New York, kicks off the book with an illuminating interview, in which he reveals the qualities needed to move successfully from being a fashion graduate to becoming a creative force on the catwalk.
