The news that fashion has appointed a new designer as a star can be signposted in various ways. For Amie Robertson, who debuted her label AV Robertson at London Fashion Week on the evidence came in the form of front-row guest Marc Jacobs, who had flown in from New York, and a coterie of superstar models including Vogue’s March cover star, Edie Campbell, celebrity offspring Georgia Jagger, and Lineisy Montero, currently in the Chanel campaign.
For a fledgling label, still designed from a bedroom in Robertson’s parents’ house in Manchester, these signals were enough to make the assembled guests at the Tate Britain show sit up and take notice. The show notes crediting Katie Grand also ensured that they paid attention. Grand, who is editor-in-chief of Love magazine, has styled for Prada and works with Jacobs. Her endorsement of an unknown like Robertson is a Big Deal. It turns out that the Central Saint Martin’s fashion illustration BA graduate met Grand when she completed a year’s internship in 2014 at Marc Jacobs in New York.
Moreover, the fashion forward labels in India are also promoting the messy bed hair style statements accompanied with a mix of couture options. From distressed denims to boyfriend jackets and dad’s shirt, don them all this season and get a high on vintage 80’s inspired Lennon or mirrored sunglasses to chase the sun in style! Don’t forget the uber-chic oxfords which are making quite a comeback and sported from streets to runway in panache.
