#2: The Ones To Know
BAZAAR highlights three rising stars setting fire to the runways. Take note.
The French-Austrian designer is the future’s answer to Thierry Mugler’s fetishistic body-con revival. Case in point: her moulded, orthopaedic leather dress, adorned with belt buckles and metallic rivets.
Reminiscent of Madame Vionnet’s romantic drape work, Georgian designer Lado takes centuries-old technique into the 21st-century with risqué cutouts and exacting silhouettes.
Inspired by silkworms and traditional Japanese art of wrapping, Mame Kurogouchi is in a league of her own. See: the designer’s diaphanous jacket and skirts, crafted from a mille-feuille of fringed PVC sheets resembling feathers.
