FAITH CONNEXION

Described as a collective of youthful creatives, Faith Connexion is the game-changing label shaking up the high fashion scene. It counts couturiers and industry insiders amongst its design team, who endeavour to capture a rock-chic and elegantly urban aesthetic with their high-shine, high-impact collections of cocktail dresses, statement pieces and modern French staples.

VETEMENTS

The announcement of the departure of Creative Director Demna Gvasalia from the Parisian-Georgian Vetements marks a new dawn for the anti-establishment fashion label, and with this being his final collection, it’s sure to go down in history. Expect subversive, no-frills glamour and anarchy-laced in-jokes through ironic slogans, uncomfortable prints and shiny patent leather.

HAIDER ACKERMANN

A graduate of Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Haider Ackermann’s striking collections of refined but sensual pieces are as sophisticated as they are modern. With a mission to empower the women who wear his clothes, androgynous tailoring comes with a side of feminine elegance and casual garments are beautifully constructed from luxurious materials, resulting in collections that are both grown-up and easy to wear.
