remember? Well, I got a load of responses via style page and twitter, thank you to all who sent in their suggestions.
Well one of the names that I researched and felt some what drawn to was Vladimir Karaleev, suggested by a 'friend' I met at Graduate Fashion Week, Merissa.
Why did I like Karaleev? Well, its was mainly because his work has developed over time (from 2007 till now) into some thing that I myself will be willing to try on; showing potential to be great. Plus the roughness of his pieces really appeals to my character and makes the clothes interesting.

Contemporary art has a strong influence on. Vladimir Karaleev. New shapes and experimental cuts form the center of the creations of the bulgarian designer Vladimir Karaleev, who creates extraordinary womens- and menswear. The creative handling of materials works in combination with the conceptual design. Karaleev goes against the traditional shapes and cuts and creates instead innovative silhouettes, that are strongly influenced by geometric structures. His close bond with the art scene is not only expressed through his conceptual approach but also through the presentation of his fashion.
Since 2010 Vladimir Karaleev is a guest lecturer at the MDH “University of Applied Sciences”. In July 2010 Vladimir Karaleev won the third prize of the fashion contest “Start your Fashion Business”. His collection showcases a pure- avant-garde style, with unusual cuts and refreshing independence. The jury complimented him by saying “Vladimir Karaleev defines the classic Couture new”
