DESIGNER TO WATCH – TONI MATICEVSKI

MERGING FASHION WITH ART

He is a designer, a curator, an art lover, a shape maker, a drape master, a philosopher, a costume builder, a fashion director, and most of all a fabric and silhouette manipulator.

DESIGNER TO WATCH – JONATHAN SIMKHAI

MAN, YOU ARE SEXY!

We just had a quickie (we usually do more than seven!) with one of New York’s most exciting young designers. Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Scarlett Johansson, and Emma Roberts are already fans of his body-con dresses and cropped tops. We say it is about time to meet Jonathan Simkhai, a Parsons grad, who started to work in fashion at the tender age of fourteen, launched his own label in 2010 and just debuted on the runway with his fall/winter 2015 collection…

PSST…

Although he has just been named by the BOF 500 as one who is shaping the Global Fashion Industry,  and has the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Keira Knightley, and Helen Mirren wearing his designs, Huishan Zhang still is fashion’s best-kept secret “…so far anyone who has found us has had to search for us and discover us... I don’t agree with pushing my product in people’s faces if it is something of no interest to them“. We have met the promising Central Saint Martins-trained designer and talked about his time at Dior, life as an entrepreneur and Chinese craftsmanship…

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

What is the recipe for success? According to Anna Karenina it goes somewhat along the lines of “dream, love and always give a 100%“, but be aware! This recipe only succeeds if you do not forget to add some key ingredients. Without a big table spoon of self-assurance and a pinch of luck it will not be quite as tasty. We have met a small girl, who is dreaming big in the fashion world. And just as Alice in Wonderland, Anna is not a tiny bit intimidated by it…
