A Tale of Transsexuals: Chin’s SS16 Menswear Collection

As societal constraints of gender seemingly drop like flies, the rules of dressing are being called in to question. Recent Central Saint Martins graduate, Chin, illustrates these blurred lines in the SS16 collection for his eponymous label. Swinging straps, exposed skin and zips suggest fetishism, as does Chin’s research. Black and white images, including a woman on all fours chained by her neck to a bedpost, and a man wearing nothing but heels as he gives the camera a smouldering stare, make up the designer’s inspiration. These gritty images translate into pieces saturated with seduction. A delicate pink, strapless top ties in the centre of the chest, leaving the split sides to act as a curtain, putting the navel centre stage, while a splash of glamour comes in the form of a sheer embroidered jacket that ties at the neck.

Nafsika Skourti is the up-and-coming designer from Jordan, now presenting her third collection since her graduation from London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins.

Parsons MFA Fashion graduate investigates: “What is fashion? And what is...

Directly reflecting the mass of waste created by the fashion industry onto her designs, Liya Liu’s entire collection L’indefini-Trash – featured at MADE Fashion Week 2015 – revolves around trash. Most of the collections shown, including Liya’s work, were more avant-garde than what is typically shown during NYFW, making for a remarkable runway presentation. Raw and dirty, her designs take on an artistic arrangement of New York City behind the scenes. She talks to us about her upbringing and how it altered her outlook on the importance of sustainability in fashion. Recent graduate of MA Fashion Design and Society at Parsons School of Design and alumnus of BA Fashion Design Womenswear at Central Saint Martins, Liya also talks to us about her experiences both in London and New York as an individual, student, and designer.

This business-savvy menswear designer might soon take London by storm

I was asked to interview Nicomede Talavera because of my history as one of his devoted helpers on his MA collection. It was as interesting for me as anyone else to hear what Nic has been up to in the last two years since he graduated – a Google search was showing pretty exciting results. In latest news, after two seasons with Fashion East and one as an official London Collections: Men designer, when we met Nic had just won a two-year mentoring scheme by CFE (Centre for Fashion Enterprise) that provided him with a studio space and valuable business advice.
