Young Designers Collective

I love learning new things and new brands and that's the main reason I love sharing new stuff with you so much! Young Designers Collective is a very unusual group of people. They design for non-profit organizations which is extremely cool. All products are of high quality (I do believe it's truth) and that's their way. The allow free exchange of ideas and want to revive the artist behind the designer. True artists, with extreme freedom in shapes and designs. Why do I write this" I've just read 'Design for giving' here

What to know more? Look, what i have found on their page
There is more about those people (info is quoted from their webpage)
Shilpa Iyengar- CEO of Young Designers Collective
After graduating from Parsons School of Design in 2012 I have been working to bring together fellow  designers, who on their own would not be able to gain as much exposure, and design collectively. Not only does a collective allow for a free exchange of ideas and talents, it fosters the growth of artists and art in commercial design as well as make more of an impact in the market. As an artist and designer, I use fashion as a platform to bring my love of art into a functional form. I let the concept guide me in whatever I design and hope to produce a wearable work of art in the process. Inspired by my travels across the world and
by my love of cultural history, I design clothing, shoes, hats, and textiles in hopes of bringing my vision to the public as painter would a painting. I also strive to be knowledgeable of both the garment and the material it is made from to achieve the best quality and comfort possible. For this reason I studied at Central St. Martins in London, where I was able to learn how to design textiles and gain a better understanding of fabric. Most of my work since has been printed and painted by hand and solidifies the idea of creating wearable art. Ultimately my goal is to put forth elegant, interesting, and unique works of wearable art that bring an appreciation to the art behind the design. For more information please visit my website: www.shilpaiyengar.com

Hanh Lam-Designer
Hanh Lam is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design. As a fashion designer, she alternates between her two primary interests: the organicity and the fluidity of knitwear, and the refinedness of old-world tailoring techniques. Her knitwear work is an exploration in manipulating raw materials into textural forms that are artistic, yet wearable. Her tailored pieces are often the result of personal obsession with arcane tailoring techniques, such as the German drated sleeves. Driving her pursuit are the principles that knitwear is about letting the raw material guide the hands, while tailoring is about taming and controlling the fabric. She currently lives and works in New York City, and can often be found doodling during her subway commute. www.hanhnyc.com

Harmony Pilobello-Designer
While pursuing a BFA in Fashion Design, Harmony Pilobello was fortunate enough to meet Professor Timo  Rissanen who was equipped with the skills to guide her through a junior and senior thesis focus in sustainability. While studying under him she was able to explore more about zero waste approaches in fashion design, including the Japanese Saori Handweaving technique. Now, she is using her design background to make one-of-a-kind garments and accessories that involve sourcing materials from small mills like Ardalanish: Isle of Mull Weavers in Scotland or sourcing for deadstock within New York City. Eventually, she would like to have seasonal collections dedicated to also sourcing from non-profit organizations that support women who fall under the poverty line, like the Awamaki Organization in Peru. She also hopes to pursue a PHD in fiber science and social enterprise.


Have a nice day,

You do know I love theFabrika project. Even the bad weather can't stop me. Last stage of this event took part outdoors which affected the evening. During Samovarfest (presenting various regions of our bug counrty) and also on public holiday, day of Russia I had a chance to check out the lovely collections. There were 3 contest participants and a headliner.

Детские Мечты

I do love it when social and fashionable is combined. When fashion show is held for reason the fashion shines brighter. What is why I was so exited when I found out about fashion charity Maraphone 'Kids Dreams' ("Детские Мечты") I realized I couldn't miss it. Because it was all about kids dreams, orphan kids dreams which were made an outfit for by other kids from the whole Russia. So important. To make it real designer kids combined their forces with various kids fashion brands both focused primary on kids fashion and major brands with kids branches. Each look was unique. Also there were a lot of wonderful celebrities which contributed a lot the whole show both acting like models and making show with songs.

FollowTheFabrika I.VII

Today I'm here to tell you about wonderful event Follow The Fabrika. One more part of fab contest never failing to fill me with fashion joy. So good! It took part in Modul space which has lots of room to both enjoy the looks created by designers and models and discuss them with wonderful people gathered there. The designs were charming! The winner Ekaterina Volkova showed a very wearable collection which totally fits into my style. I'd love to wear her pieces for day to day life. Very nice choice of calm earthy tones. My personal best however was brand Kiritti by designer from Kazakhstan Sunkar Esmukhanov, charming vintage vibe, stunning accessories. I do want the whole collection mine and seriously planning on buying some of pieces for me. Alena Voronina and Pavel Metelin (brand Rd. Yoke) made a great job showing creative everyday looks for modern city girl (the collection look splendid in Modul interior). Kosheleva Olga's collection was very much complete - it could ful…
