Gareth Pugh...

... a designer whose work i have been aware of since his inflatable MA Fashion collection for CSM. However, today whilst doing some research i came across some if his RTW designs for menswear...

... i love his varied use of textured fabrics and his attention to detail.

New Designs...

Back to uni this week for our last semester. Doubt I'll be getting much sleep over the next 4months but I'm hopeful it'll all be worth it. I shall also try and post more new work up soon, but until then this is a couple pieces I have been working on... (sorry the images aren't the best quality as took them on my blackberry)

future fashions.

Gudrun Kloepsch

Lacopo Calamandrei

Adrian Sommerauer

Katie Eary

These images display just a few pieces of work from designers, all having graduated from the RCA in 2009, currently exhibiting within the V&A. Well worth a look if you're down in Londontown, as the exhibition most definitely holds an eclectic mix of work from delicate embroidered couture garments to bold prints and forms from Katie Eary.

From fabric manipulation to the use of experimental materials to his talented skills in crochet, not to mention having dressed Lady GaGa last year, Ioannis Dimitrousis' work is eclectic to say the least.

Miss Dalton

Menswear designer Lou Dalton previously known for her quirky take on classic english dress, seen in the first image, seems to have taken a risk with her SS 10 collection. The most bold pieces of her collection consisting of the shoulder piece, seen in the above image, and the bustle. I love her mixture of classic and the innovative, there's no point recreating the past unless you're going to mix it up a bit.

Summer's here

Okay so maybe summer isn't quite here yet... what with the snow outside my house making that quite obvious. However, i sure as hell can't wait to see more of Burberry in the upcoming months. Mr Bailey sure is doing a good job of making us rapidly forget Burberrys 'chav' days.


Whilst reading the latest edition of Dazed and Confused I came across an extremely talented young menswear designer named Lenny Pier Ramos. Born in Montreal this 23 year old designer uses atmosphere and his interest in sub cultural groups as an influence within his work. I LOVE his subtle use of fabric manipulation, as these pleats and folds seem to embody a symbolic form of new age bondage. Currently working on his own label, and as one half of the brand PowerHaus, not to mention being the menswear designer for Louis Vuitton i can't wait to see what 2010 holds for him.
