New York fashion week, known for its obscure brands compared to Paris and Milan, ended just yesterday, and we got to see many interesting figures showcase their unique works.
Here are 3 designers you’ve never heard of that rocked the runway and the streets this fashion week.
1 GENERAL IDEA ( BUMSIK CHOI )
Bumsik Choi, a bold designer of Korean ethnicity, who struggled at first to generate his brand from his background.
He was the son of a street food vendor, and dropped out of school to work in a clothes factory, eventually creating his own brand.
Widely known in Korea and now gaining popularity in the U.S. , his newest collection featured simple designs and shapes.
2 HEAD OF STATE ( Taofeek Abijako )
Head of state is a brand that has only existed since last year, but is already rocking amazing designs. Drawing inspiration from colonial times in Africa, Head of state produces colorful, graphically-embellished clothing.
The brand tries to project itself as “combining minimalist streetwear approach with social and political commentary”.
3 PRIVATE POLICY ( Haoran Li and Siying Qu )
design duo Haoran Li and Siying Qu graduated from Parsons the New School in New York, May 2015, and have been pursuing dreams of fashion thus far, creating beautiful, colorful, and unique items that everyone can love. They are self described “restriction breakers” looking to find something new and take new paths with fashion.
