100 New Fashion Designers

Published this year, 100 New Fashion Designers by Hywel Davies introduces 100 of today's most innovative emerging fashion designers (mostly London-based) on 385 beautifully designed pages. Each designer is represented with a biography, overview of their label, and interviews in which they discuss their design philosophy and aesthetic. The book includes 900 photos and sketches. It's comprehensive, dedicating enough space to the visuals and giving all the facts necessary to understand the fundamentals of the featured designers and their work.

Reading 100 New Fashion Designers, I discovered several talented designers I hadn't known before. I'll keep my eye on them in the upcoming seasons; fashion today changes more rapidly than ever, and these designers are its future.

You should read it if …

You want to be ahead of the fashion crowd in five years when everyone else will want to know about these designers too.
