Fashion Verified Magazine was the first to arrive at the beautiful Presidential Suite in the Westin Paris hotel. The four winning designers of The Fellowship Programme, established by Fashion Council Germany and H&M, were eagerly waiting to present their newest collections. We had pleasure to speak with these designers and learn more about their collections.
What Tim Labenda Really Is AboutTim Labenda tells us the story of the brand for his newest collection. He is all about working with different fabrics, handcrafting techniques, and fits. You can tell he has a background in menswear, with his interest in tailoring and quality of fabric. This collection included embroidery of crystals, due to the collaboration with Swarovski. It is a wearable and seasonless mix of light fabrics and transparency, with heavier things like faux furs on top.
German Order Meets ChinatownWilliam Fan is a one-man show. He is always dancing, doing his taxes, designing, and having a lot of fun—at the same time.
Comfy CoutureThe name Boulezar originates from "boulevard," and is a brand that is evolving streetwear into a luxurious game. Ready-to-wear, comfortable labelless clothing, with a couture finish inside. If you feel ashamed to go outside to walk your dog in bad quality sweatpants, fear no more. For example, with Boulezar's cashmere pants for ladies, you will both be comfortable and look great.
The Inside on the OutsideTHe Horror Vacuis name is represented by the clothing, which is filled with details, flowers, and colours. The designer was inspired by pajamas, night wear, undergarments, and all intimate wear. She has translated it into something fun to wear on the outside. She also has a pajamas collection, with clients that include the "Topping Rose House" in Bridgehampton, New York.
