Founder of Comme des Garçons and Dover Street Market, Rei Kawakubo (川久保 玲) is exploring brave new fashion. Avant-garde designs were created to challenge conventional thoughts for an upcoming exhibition.

The themed show displays around 140 pieces of Kawakubo’s womenswear collections from the 1980s to present day. The galleries demonstrate experimental ways to illustrate the space between boundaries. Rei Kawakubo continues to shape the face of global art and fashion with her work.

The Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons: Art of The In-Between exhibition debuts on 04 May 2017 until 04 September 2017 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

London delivered an amazing display of fashion for Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 collections.

For me, Markus Lupfer portrayed the most oustanding presentation at London Fashion Week.

The German designer, Markus Lupfer graduated from University of Westminster in 1997. Graduating from the same university, I recognize that anything is possible in this fast-paced industry. Lupfer’s talent is very admirable. It has allowed him to excel within the British fashion sphere. Soon enough, he was given the British Fashion Council‘s New Gen award in 2001. Then over the past ten years, expertise gained him a popular following with awesome millennials and celebrities including: Alexa Chung, Beyonce, Rihanna, Florence Welch, Blake Lively and Lily Allen.

Markus Lupfer is the definition of contemporary fashion. The image above is my favorite piece from the previous season SS13/14. There is a unique aesthetic. The brand breathes life and inspiration through design. The playful theme in each collection that captures attention of today’s international youth. If you fancy the latest items, you can shop here.

And now time to venture to the next fashion capital. Are you excited?!
