There is a new wave of fashion talent – scouted, supported and empowered through NET-A-PORTER’s global mentorship program.
One of the most exciting designers to emerge this year, the 2019 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund winner is taking the fashion world by storm, dazzling with his vibrant use of color and dramatic silhouettes. The Brooklyn-based
designer brings a refreshing and whimsical take on evening through cascading silky dresses, elegant pleated skirts and exciting opulent shapes.
Marie-Christine Statz, founder of the Paris-based label GAUCHERE, was refining her technique in Paris at the École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne when her teacher baptized her La Gauchere, French for
left-handed, a characteristic that deeply influenced her approach to design and made her creations so unique and easily recognizable. For those with minimalist tastes, GAUCHERE’s clean-lined silhouettes and muted colour palette make up the perfect capsule wardrobe, offering effortlessly chic pieces and sharp tailoring.
Founded just over a year ago, this Paris-based label blends sophisticated lines with a quirky edge, offering a contemporary take on femininity. Whilst the signature slip dresses create a naturally modern and flattering look, the brand’s exciting prints take direct inspiration from stylised Japanese cherry blossom woodcut art, applied through an unreproducible technique, making the piece truly unique.
S.Joon’s name is a portmanteau of founder Sahar Asvandi’s first initial and a Persian term of endearment. Designed in sculptural silhouettes, the Italian-made pieces are inspired by her love of vintage handbags, blending elegant textures with elevated lines to create the timeless aesthetic. Founded in 2017, Sahar created a collection of beautiful statement-making handbags, defined by its distinctive shapes and sophisticated aesthetic.
