Fashion New Optimism: 18 Fresh Talents
Dazeddigital presents 18 of the freshest young fashion talents of the year. For the December issue of Dazed & Confused, the fashion team gave reason to be cheerful with a shoot by Daniel Sannwald styled by Katie Shillingford and Robbie Spencer. Pierre Debuscherre also made a film to accompany this energetic shoot, which showcased the new designers, the new faces as chosen by the Dazed fashion team and and above all it asks people to "Smile!".

The best one is Sandra Backlund.

Alice Kirkpatrick is such a Gareth Pugh wannabe.

other than the obvious in my absolute adoration of sandra,i also find katie eary rather a stand out amongst the bunch. taking less of a monochromatic approach that pretty much dominates menswear,i find her approach extremely refreshing.

Antonion's work is the one that truly speaks to me out of the entire bunch.
and Sandra of course.. she's undeniably talented.

They could've included Matthew Cunnington.. he's seriously someone to watch.

thanks for the thread, kiddo!.

I just have to say that I don't agree with the modern definition of "talent". I don't see that any of this work showcases any kind of talent for actual craftsmanship. I think these days we are far too much caught up with "creativity" - and to be honest, even in that this isn't great. All I see is material and junk heaped on models.

The only exceptions are Sandra Backlund and Damien Fredriksen Ravn. Although that particular collections from which the featured photos are from wasn't as good as her other collections, she is fresh. Never heard of Fredriksen Ravn, but I like those three pictures, although they do evoke strong associations with Alexander McQueen's late 90's collections.
