    As opposed to the indies topic,these designers may have been around for a while.

    Which designers,do you feel,don't recieve the recognition they deserve?

    Definitely Narciso Rodriguez...he should be a household name by now, but he's not very well known outside of fashion circles.

    HI SCOTT :flower: For a men's designer , could I mention Bernard Sanz who did sterling design at Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche and Monsieur de Balmain in the 80's and 90's .
    For a women's designer I would like to nominate Jean-Paul Knott who , imho , has as much going for him as Alber Elbaz - another designer who fell from grace and has now come back with a vengeance ! regards KIT

    Giorgio Armani - recognized by ordinary people but many followers of fashion forget what the industry owes to Armani...

    Yup. Moules,frites-mit mao :p

    I cannot begin to express what's been already. I adore them very much. Actually so much so I feel I get on people's nerves with my constant praise.


    Lena,you can thank Alexander's interview on showstudio. I loved this question so much I thought I would ask myself on here.

    More on my list

    10. Tess Giberson(who I suppose counts having a few collections under her belt now and a few articles written about her--still quite underrated right now)
    11. Robert Cary-Williams
    12. Maria Chen-Pascual
    13. Jessica Ogden
    14. Shelley Fox
    15. Koji Tatsuno
    16. United Bamboo
    17. Marc Le Bihan(!)
    18. Martin Margiela
    19. Xavier Delcour(he always seems to get shunned to the side and he was really the one who started the whole Nu Romantic look!)
    20. Lutz
    21. Cosmic Wonder
    22. Niels Klavers
    23. Saskia Van Drimmelen

    lots of others, sometimes I think Galliano is underrated because he should get even more recognition for his designs
    and Yohiji
