I Heart Ann Demeulemeester

In Fashion on May 21, 2010 at 11:06 pm

Famous for her association with the Antwerp six, fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester brings an intense yet sporty aesthetic to neo-Gothic fashion. It’s no wonder her popularity is on the rise as of late; Demeulemeester is the perfect alternative rebellion to Hervé Léger’s bondage dress because it’s the real thing. You don’t just wear Demeulemeester because you want to be sexy, you wear her because you are sexy.

I Heart Rick Owens

The American-born clothing connoisseur Rick Owens is one of the few designers to thrust goth-inspired fashion into the limelight. Using minimalist silhouettes and sharp cuts as his trademark, Owens got his start in 2002 when he debuted his ready-to-wear collections before the top editors in the busy. He’s been in the  business since `94, but what made him a star was the fact that his collection was reminiscent of Marc Jacob’s `95 grunge break-through. Careless and defiant against the  ultra-feminine and flashy trend  at the time. He’s cultivated his love for the dark side since his days as an Art student in California. But when he moved to Paris with Michele Lamy in tow, he was able to delve deeper into the realms of sexuality and S&M creating a classic, avant-garde collection.

Women turn to him for that no-nonsense, attitude fuelled concept whether heading to the boardroom or the disco. Owens’ designs are authoritative, dark and empowered, so if you’re a fan of Erdem’s luminous floral dresses, he  may not be for you.
