DB Berdan’s socially advanced garments embrace every part of postmodern society in passionate and spirited streetwear.
Wesley Harriott is a Tottenham born contemporary womens wear designer, his collections are rooted in biological stories influenced by females that have impacted his past in both fiction and reality. This alongside his primary influences of video games and anime help shape his powerful and striking designs. Harriott has created a strong silhouette with decedent shoulder padding used to announce a presence of importance alongside contradicting boxy shapes. The designs hold a deep utilitarian style whilst playing with layering, cut outs and use of negative space.
Jacqueline Loekito redefines distinctive heteronormativity within traditional fashion by creating artistic genderless collections. Her main vision is that Jacqueline Loekito garments can be shared between men and women from one wardrobe to another. Sharp tailoring juxtaposed against flattering lines and complimentary colour palettes satisfy elements of both masculinity and femininity. Jacqueline believes that in the future there will be no separation between male and female clothing, her label radiates the perspective of there being no labels.
