Anna K

Designer Anna Karenina, who launched her career at 16, has grown up design-wise.
Karenina has future plans beyond designing. She is looking to disrupt the industry and introduce fashion coins, a concept similar to Bitcoin, that will allow consumers to purchase her looks using the currency. A novel concept, to be sure. She’s someone to keep an eye on.

 

Anouki

The designer Anouki Areshidze is one of the few who has enjoyed consistent success outside of Eastern Europe. She sells at Moda Operandi and held a well-attended presentation in Milan in September. Her husband, Kakha Kaladze, a soccer player turned politician, was recently elected the mayor of Tbilisi and some people are now referring to Areshidze as the First Lady of Tbilisi.

Little Juggernauts

” I started off my career working with record labels designing tour T-shirts for high profile artists and events. From there, I gained the drive for apparel design and found a great path into the fashion world, designing apparel prints and collaborating many of the industry’s most prolific fashion establishments. Next, New Look, River Island, and Primark to name a few.

The valuable experience gained from working with such companies inspired me to apply my skills in many different sectors of design work. I branched out to include print and apparel design for boyswear, ladieswear, girlswear, kids and babywear. My expertise is not limited to clothing, being a hands on individual, I have designed for fashion accessories, urban accessories, events, skateboards and longboards.

I believe that as a designer with innate and constantly evolving creative abilities, my commercial awareness of the audience at hand is essential. I thrive on newness, quirkiness, coolness and most of all, Ollyness. This is what drives me, you and the audience.”

Marianna Sanchina

Urban culture is the aesthetic element that every designer has to deal with. Emerging talents therefore look with attention at the young, at their favorite materials and the way clothes fit and how they mix different styles. From this shared ground they start off to define a new narration, describing their individual creative journey. “My brand’s aesthetics is always inspired by street style and pop culture. By our everyday life,” said young designer Marianna Senchina. “For my garments I choose a playful, fun appeal. I like colorful pieces and mannish silhouettes”. But shapes are ample and rigorous, in contrast with chromatic excess. The idea is to create a cocktail mixing menswear with womenswear. “I do my research browsing second-hand markets and looking at the past collections of the fashion houses I love. I try to find a balance between past and present”.

Rotsaniyom

The Thai fashion label Rotsaniyom was founded by the couple Pongsak ‘Off’ Kobrattanasuk and Thita “Gift” Kamonnetsawat in 2007. Initially, this designer couple sold T-shirts at two stalls in Chatuchak Market. Since their T-shirts sold very well among vintage lovers, Off and Gift expanded their fashion design and started a flagship store at Siam Center and recently opened another store at Emquartier.

Their style can be described as vintage and retro with an Asian-ethnic touch. Hence, romantic and dreamy patterns, lace and romantic designs are predominant. The dresses are mostly cream coloured, white or pastel. Gift has always been in love with fashion design and she particularly admires Thai fashion designers like Greyhound, Theoddyssee and It’s Happening. They are her main source of inspiration. In her view, there is no need to look at international designers in search for role models or inspiration. Both designers love the Old Town in Bangkok and they also enjoy collecting vintage items. For instance, Gift bought a Japanese dress from the 1920s which she considers the oldest piece that she owns. Thus, vintage items are also a great source of inspiration for the Rotsaniyom desginers!
