Last season our eyes feasted on the colourful chaos that was Nadia Mustafa and Zehra Mustafa‘s line. Those New Zealand twins crashed and splashed our senses with Lego headpieces, feathers, googly glasses and a big ‘fuck you‘ to all watchers! We all loved it and hit social media hardcore with the audacity of line.
Showcasing at this Spring / Summer season is a confirmed designer with the outrageous concepts, styling and whose garments have body morphing ability. This designer to tickle our senses is multi-award winning designer George Styler.
This Serbian designer is ready to bring his highly structured, embellished and layered knits to Vancouver and given our coastal weather, we anticipate great appreciation from the media and locals.
Personally, I am in awe of last seasons sequined body suits and hope to see more sleek embellished garments on the runway next week.
“George Styler is bringing his world ethno style to an international stage. He graduated from the college of textile design and technology management in Belgrade and now holds a diploma in apparel design and textile.
He first caught the attention of the fashion world with his debut collection Captivity at Fashionclash 2012, Belgrade Fashion Week, and International Fashion Showcase – London Fashion Week 2013. By 2014, George Styler has received 4 awards for his contribution to fashion. His designs combine knitwear with other styles and aim to convey a certain message.
His collections are sociological studies expressed through fashion where words and phrases are replaced by clothing of expressive, communicative powers. His collections are initiated by reflections on the existence of freedom of the modern man, his right to belong everywhere and to everyone, to move and speak freely, and to dress without restraint, yet still be captivated by the freedom of his choices.
This paradigm derivatives from the reality in which liberty is largely a declarative right, and We are increasingly captured by the modern society, new media, prejudices, internalized social criteria and externally-imposed anticipation. George is dealing with the questions of freedom through fashion design, which includes elements of symbolic meaning.
George Styler is ‘Ones to Watch’ Winner of Season AW14 @Fashion Scout London @ London Fashion Week. His pieces have been featured in Vogue, GLAMOUR, The Wild, SLAVE, VANGARDIST, Huf, Dominus, GLASSbook, Esquire, ZINK, Fashion Affair and the front covers of New African Woman and Unfolded magazines.”
