Today's young designers are savvier and more daring than ever before. Happy to exist within or outside of the established houses of haute couture, their reputations are cemented by savvy consumers who are willing to navigate the thin line between trendsetting and trend following. This book of the most creative and iconoclastic members of today's fashion scene includes Fashion Week regulars and cutting edge up-and-comers. Each designer is profiled in double-page spreads that include runway-ready products as well as notes, sketches, and biographical information. These fifty young men and women have embraced the global, economic, and environmental realities that serve to both challenge and inspire.
