For some unexplainable reason....I'm lovin the VAGABOND HAUTE COUTURE Fall16 collection by VIKTOR & ROLF....something about the mixture of rough and pretty has me feeling totally elated 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍


Congratulations to the class of 2016 πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½. I ❤️ the talent and skill of all the emerging designers this year. British fashion is defo going to make a mark in the world of fashion! Well done guys! 


I've always had a love for punk...much of my own style is punk influenced....of course this young designer's creations would catch my attention! Her prints and intricate beading remind me of now overly popular brand Discount Universe. A recent graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martins...her brand has already been picked up by upscale designer haven Selferidges. If I had to bet....I would bet that Dilara has a very bright future ahead of her! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️


I found designer Gerald Love on instagram. His bright, colour infused wearable art hit all the right spots! As an art aficionado myself, it was love at first sight. 😍😍😍 I asked the young creator to share his journey and future plans and here's what he said: 

"My name is Gerald Love I am 22 years old and i recently just graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh for fashion design. I'm from a very small town outside of Pittsburgh called Beaver Falls,Pennsylvania. Being from such a small town there isn't much opportunity so I went out and had to created my own lane. My love for fashion started ever since I was a young child. I love getting dressed up and putting different unique looks together together. I even got best dressed in middle school lol. ever since then I knew I was destined for something great. I always knew i was going to take the creative route  when it came to a career. Before I wanted to be a fashion designer I wanted to be a art teacher. I remember being in elementary school when everyone wanted to go to gym class I was the only one who looked forward to going to art class. My grandmother was a big inspiration to me when it came to being creative. She taught me how to always put my creative foot forward. What sparked my true love for fashion and what made me know that this is what I wanted to do for a career was when i was in the 9th grade and famous stylist Rachel Zoe came out with her hit show The Rachel Zoe Project. This was the show that started it all. She had an assistant by the name of Brad Goreski and I was so intrigued by him. His style was amazing! what caught my attention the most was his amazing bow ties that he always wore. He literally had a new one on each episode and i loved it! It was fresh, it was new, it was original and it wasn't done before. What I loved the most was his confidence. I owe a lot of my success to that show cause it was the start of something great.

I attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 2012. This was the start of an amazing journey for me. I didn't know how much success i would really have but I just wanted to put my foot forward and see where it would take me. when I first started at the art institute i didn't know the first thing about sewing or fashion i just knew it was a huge passion that i had. It wasn't easy for me at all. I failed alot at first,but with my hard work and dedication i began to progress and to develop the skills I needed to become something great. My love for prints and bold outlandish colors became what I was known for or what most people would say my esthetic.I began to notice that people started to become more and more intrigued by me cause of my confidence and i wasn't afraid to step outside of the box and push the boundaries. I became recognized and started to become extremely influential in the city of Pittsburgh. Here i was this young boy from a really small town coming to this big city and making my mark. I met a lot of amazing people and had a lot of amazing opportunities in that city. It really built me into the person that I am today. 

Whats next for me is I plan on moving to Philadelphia because its close to New York and that's where i would really like to be in the next few years. I would love to work for a company designing for the experience, but also expanding my brand at the same time. I would also love to live in Tokyo and network because I'm so intrigued by the way they dress and i could see myself being a real success over there. to be honest I want to be a big name one day. I feel with my hard work and dedication I could do it. I feel I'm destined for greatness!"

SURELY ONE TO WATCH! Gerald Love 😍😍😍😍😍

I've been a fan of Jenifer Le's insane fashion sense for years now. A few years ago..I vividly remember my obsession with her blog. Always setting the trend with the baddest fashion and dope accessories....she's been badass since day one. Since then, she has launched her website as well as a badass line of shoes and limited edition clothing. And guess what....she easily gives Balmain a run for the money! Her dazzling designs are right up my alley : sexy, shiny, and loads of bling! I love an ambitious chic...and Jenifer Le is a go-getter in every sense of the word. Keep your glo up baby girl! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

For this blog I wanted to highlight and spotlight young emerging talent rather than report the already famous names and faces. The world is bulging with so much unseen and under rated designers and creators. Hopefully this blog has made a difference! Until we meet again.....stay....oh-so-fab! Over and out....Lisa Couture 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘
