some of my favorite designers

 Hi guys, today I am going to talk about a few of my favorite designers right now. You may know some of these and it might be the first time you hear about others. Let’s go:

  1. My absolute favourite, Simon Porte Jacquemus. As you probably guessed from his name, he is the founder and designer for Jacquemus. Lately, I have been obsessed with his pieces. He started his brand 10 years ago and named it after his mother’s maiden name. He studied at ESMOD Paris and was invited to present his collection at Paris Fashion Week in 2012.  here are some of my personal faves from his runways:

  2. Peter Do is another designer I really love and respect. He designed for Celine and Derek  Lam before starting his own brand. Peter is a private person and you can’t really find any picture of him, but you can recognize him by his very unique tattoo that is a long black line from his neck to his hand. What I also really appreciate from Peter Do, except the clothes, is his genuine care for sustainability. He even created a whole new type of material that is sustainable and long lasting. Some of my favorite looks:

  3. I discovered Dion Lee recently and I fell in love with his designs and his ethics. He has a few pieces that are unisex and I really love that. Also, I have a weird obsession with corsets which he has a bunch of and are so beautiful. I don’t have a lot of information on his life and career, but I will show you some stunning looks from his collections:

  4. Iris van Herpen is such a great designer and she is so creative. Her designs are literal pieces of art. They look like a combination of sculpture, fashion and architecture. She designs Haute Couture pieces and she uses 3D printing as part of the creation process. She interned at Alexander McQueen before she decided to start her own brand in 2007. If you’ve never heard of her before, you HAVE to check out her work. It’s magical. I am going to show you some of my personal favorites:

  5. Jean Paul Gaultier is a very controversial designer, since his pieces are very unconventional but in a good way. He first started as Pierre Cardin’s assistant, and then slowly began working his way up. During his career he was creative director at Hermes, he has his own brand, he released a single and co-hosted a TV show. Unfortunately he retired in January 2020, but I will show you some of his best looks in my opinion:

Brands you should know about

  Lately, I noticed I hear people talking about the same brands over and over again, so I decided to go on a ‘quest’ to find new brands that match my style, aren’t so well known and are more or less sustainable. 

  I made a long list of these brands, some of them are pretty cheap, but there are also some almost luxury brands. I chose these brands firstly because I loved their pieces, they look like pieces of art that you can wear.

   I will link their Instagram next to their name and you can find their websites in the bio of their accounts. Let’s get started:

1. Paloma wool. Paloma wool is a sustainable and size inclusive brand with some beautiful pieces, at accessible prices in my opinion, considering they are made to be long lasting.

  2. House of Sunny. House of Sunny is a British brand focused on sustainability. All of their pieces are vegan and they only create 2 collections per year, this way reducing  the waste and reducing the carbon footprint. They have stunning garments, my personal favorites are their pants and cardigans.

  3. Dion Lee. Dion Lee might be my favorite brand that I will be talking about today. His clothing is like wearable pieces of art. The first time I saw her work I fell in love. Something I also really love is that a lot of her pieces are unisex, which means anyone can wear them and look stunning.

  4. Kim Shui. Kim Shui is another wonderful brand, I don’t have a lot of information about the brand itself but I can tell you the clothes are so beautiful. It is a little bit on the expensive side like Dion Lee, but it’s definitely worth it. Also, Kim Shui was nominated in the Forbes 30 under 30.

  5. Miaou. Miaou became famous after the CEO, Alexia Eklaim, designed the perfect fitting vintage jeans. Her collections all have this 90’s feeling to them, and as a 90’s style lover I have to say I am in love.
