HOT DESIGNERS – Joseph Altuzarra

February 19, 2010

Mr Altazurra originally studied ballet in Paris and kinda slipped into fashion through an internship at Marc Jacobs in New York.

After further apprenticeships at Givenchy and Nina Ricci (where I clearly see a source of inspiration for Altazurra) he debuted in 2008 for spring/summer 2009 and has been loved by fashion insiders since.

His autumn/winter 2010 collection,  he just showed at NYFashionweek is most interesting, cause it goes in the whole opposite direction then the current trend/the other designers:  for spring/summer he showed a dreamy seventies inspired collection and is now turning to a strong, dark and sexy collection with black leather and red velvet – somehow S&M-ish and goth.

(By the way, I gotta say that Alexander Wang showed similar tendencies with his sw2010 sollection!)

However, he seemed to convince editors and buyers again and is said to have passed his newcomer status .
