Throughout the history of fashion, some designers stood out as examples of creativity, ingenuity and courage.
Their unconventional approach and inventive spirit graced us with new options in our closets and inspired us to step up in style. Being unique is the key to an exceptional look. Designers such as Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, and John Galliano have been dubbed ‘rebellious creatures’ and ‘visionaries’ because they dared to challenge the established esthetics, creating new silhouettes and unexpected combinations of colors, forms and motifs. They showed us that designing your own look for yourself is the only way you can get noticed by others!
ALEXANDER MCQUEEN AND HIS SAVAGE BEAUTY
He taught us that we can even use the ugliest materials to produce the prettiest result, heavily experimenting with nudity, texture, volume, darkness, gloominess and drama. We now know that custom designed outfits can be story-telling and emotion-provoking. The more original they are the more shocking and groundbreaking they get. It’s quite true that Lee McQueen threw most of his customers outside their comfort zone, with eveningwear that wasn’t always the epitome of comfort, but it was definitely an anthem to the adventurous spirit of a designer!
VIVIENNE WESTWOOD AND HER PUNK ROOTS
Music – and especially Sex Pistols – was the vehicle of her creativity. It was also activism and a non-conformist attitude that brought her to the forefront of the punk era as a designer who created edgy clothes with contrasting elements for many generations to come. Things she did in the 70’s and 80’s still look fresh and rebellious. From her early years in the industry, we learn that anything can happen in an outfit, even a crinoline combined with a mini skirt!
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER AND HIS CONE BRA
Charmed by uneasy beauty, a variety of cultures and reinterpreted sexuality, the ‘enfant terrible’ of fashion ushered us into the era of the ‘Material Girl’, the world of superstars and the cosmopolitan universe that turns all-time classic marinière into high fashion extravaganza. We are so much inspired by his ethnic motifs and looks and, most importantly, his intricately manufactured Couture pieces!
JOHN GALLIANO AND HIS THEATRICAL FLAIR
He might not be as grandiose on the catwalk as he was with Dior in the past, but he still keeps the drama in his creations for Maison Margiela. His biased-cut frocks, epic headpieces, and reinterpretations of the New Look fed the glorious era of the 90’s super models with unforgettable images. John teaches us how to take the classics, deconstruct them and transform them into epic fashion statements.
Such designers want us bold and playful. ‘Having fun with fashion’ was always a liberating motto. This is why you need to design an outfit for all special occasions. Custom made dresses definitely reflect a genuine and probably more daring part of you.
