“As the the Icy wind bit through her ragged sack cloth cape, Nastenka refused to trouble Morozko, the kindly Woodman, when he offered her the warmth of his coat. Instead, she gripped the hood of her cape, picked up her long skirts, and thanked him for his gracious offer…little knowing that Morozko was in fact, […]

Jenevieve Lyons

“I took the concept of meditation used in the monastic culture as further inspiration to convey escapism of society and the ideal simulated life, to evidently grow yourself,” said Jenevieve Lyons (jenevievelyons.co.za), a  young fashion designer based in South Africa, who depicts visual parables throughout her clothing. In all her works she refers to concepts […]

Marissa Webb
Marissa Webb

As a woman who spent her childhood playing in the woods of Pennsylvania covered in mud, New York based designer Marissa Webb is a far-cry from the playful tomboy she once was.

Odilon by Stacey Clarke
Odilon by Stacey Clarke

In the fashion industry where success can be as short-lived as a momentary trend, it is a rarity to see a designer at the peak of their career step back and put everything on hold. Stacey Clark, owner and designer of Odilon in Los Angeles, however, did exactly that last spring. Clark, who was labelled […]

Silver Seed Clothing
Silver Seed Clothing

Mark Colle
Mark Colle

Lights go low, music starts rolling, whispers subside, and the first model steps out. She struts down the runway, avoiding obstacles of all sorts: flashing lights from the photographers, the runway’s sharp corners and floral arrangements displayed in large Plexiglas cubes scattered across her path. The flowers are carefully hand-selected to highlight the palette of […]

Ernesto Artillo
Ernesto Artillo

Fashion and its imagery have developed into a world in constant evolution- — a universe of contrasting aesthetics and competing styles. Often over-saturated with not always brilliant pictures, it has now reached an era when there is too much of the same and too little thought behind each figure. The boundaries of art are blurring […]

Cres. E. Dim.
Cres. E. Dim.

To those not in the industry, it sounds like the glamorous life. The latest styles, the hottest events, flashing lights, and beautiful, confident people. And while this isn’t an untruth, it’s not the whole truth, either. Behind every collection and runway show that’s oohed and aahed over, there are countless hours of sketching, measuring, planning, […]

Don’t Shoot The Messenger
Don't Shoot The Messenger

The Berlin-based label Don’t Shoot the Messengers (DSTM) has an immediately recognizable aesthetic, articulated through sculptural and provocative leather accents, delicate sweeping silk, and, above all else, the color black. It’s a label in constant dialogue with the designer’s adoptive city and Berlin’s notoriously avant-garde disciples. Jen Gilpin, DSTM’s 34-year-old Canadian founder, established the label […]

Continuum: 3D Printing

Usually a straitjacket is a fashion don’t, but 2013 Designer’s Nest winner, Camilla Jæger, found a way to turn crazy into sassy. Jæger’s award winning line includes three ensembles that flaunt flowing fabrics and a basic color palette. “I wanted to interpret the clothing patients were wearing during hospitalization at an historical asylum in Aarhus, […]

Bernadette Alice Francis
Bernadette Alice Francis

A kaleidoscopic happiness explosion of epic proportions would be one way to describe the work of 23-year-old fashion designer on the rise Bernadette Alice Francis. Based in Melbourne, Australia—and also head-buyer/visual merchandiser at much-lauded Alice Euphemia—Francis is fascinated by the human condition, particularly “the fine line between the ephemeral, permanent, and the pursuit of happiness—how […]

Black Fashion Week
Black Fashion Week

Fashion history is wrought with imagery defying our perspective of what is beautiful: tall, slim, blonde, blue eyes…characteristics you’d normally attach to a white person. Fashion has always made it harder for the darker skinned girls, despite the few that triumphed such as Naomi Campbell, Chanel Iman and Joan Smalls. There just isn’t enough demand, […]

It’s risky. You’re being reckless with your life. You’re wasting your time. It’s not going to be easy. Are you sure? Chances are, if you took the artistic route in life as a career path, you’ve heard at least, (if not all) of these in some sort of variation at least once in your life. […]

Luly Yang
Luly Yang

Seattle – Phrases like: “High-End design,” “Couture,” and “Fashion-Forward” aren’t usually the first words to pop into mind. Not the second either. Words and visions like: “Green,” “Jimi Hendrix,” and “Rain” flit across the psyche more readily. Beautiful scenery and whatnot, but beautiful dresses? Not so much. Enter Luly Yang. A passionately creative designer from […]
