The fashion world is in a state of fluctuations now and many rumors have been going on. In the year 2015, many designers left some of the big companies and some of them have started their own. Meanwhile, many famous people of the industry have started questioning the pace of fashion cycle and will biannual weeks of fashion really make any sense. But there is no doubt that the year 2016 is going to bring a big change in the industry at many levels and will put a stop to all these questions. There are many designers would be front in this change. But, we need to see who will occupy the top designer roles at Dior and Lanvin and how the Gucci's Alessandro Michel designs will perform at the cash register. These are the few people on whom the close eyes were kept in the next coming 12 months.
In the month of February Andy, Spade and Kate will come up with a debut a Frances Valentine which is a line of handbags and shoes which will be marked as the first venture of the Kate after she left namesake brand in the year 2007. It is very difficult for associating Kate Spade the person with a brand which is not known as a Kate Spade. However, the ultra-feminine accessories such as low-heeled metallic sandals, cheeky bags, and dainty espadrilles belong to her. But, the marketing strategy will be a new picture of the line that is seized until they will hit the stores.
Jonathan Saunders was a Scottish designer has declared in the month of December that he had left his label of namesake for his personal reasons. It is surprising for many people that because this person received many awards from many years from British Fashion Council awards as well as sponsorships to a turn of celebrity red carpet credits which includes plenty of them from Kate Middleton. But, this talent will not go waste but, we need to look forward seeing where he ends up actually.
He is one of the beloved fashion designers and since many years he has been associated with Lanvin house and his expelling from that house gave him a chance for bringing a name for himself. He has started with an Instagram to use it to keep his personal brand till he is ready to launch his next chapter. Certainly, we will be seeing those bow ties and glasses at the end of a runway again quickly.
4. Rio Uribe:
Rio Uribe is one of the winners of the CFDA last year who was a designer. Most of the people in the industry have not heard about Rio Uribe of crazy gender-fluid street wear label Gypsy Sport. This brand only showed two times the time of New York Fashion week and have found out a fan for it. Same as the breaking of the gender roles, streetwear does also have a moment and the Gypsy Sport with fashion power would be special. By having 300,000 with him, Rio Uribe has made an impact in this fashion world somehow in this year.
5. Johnny Coca:
Nearly after three years, Emma Hill has left her role as a creative director of Mulberry and her replacement is Johnny Cocoa will be pressing his first collection in the month of February in the London Fashion Week. Mulberry is one of the good shows that most of the people will look for it in London. There we can find the cute and wearable clothes and the bags that we would like to pick off from the models etc. But, for Cocoa this is not Mulberry was not on everyone radar since few seasons and every time he needs to come up with something fresh. He will be under pressure for delivering the collections that are feasible as the brand is in the midst.
6. Rachel Roy:
Rachel Roy after facing the nightmare from her past company which resulted in the end of her designer line there, she said that she will be re-launching it in the month of September. Apart from her designer line, she didn’t come up with a collection right from the year 2014. But, since then the landscape has changed and she got some time for making some ideas and we need to wait to see out them.
7. Demna Gvasalia:
Apart from being buzziest labels in fashion, Vetements, he is also named as the replacement of Alexander Wang's at Balenciaga. This person had made a Vetements success in the overnight and thanks for his distinctive and wearable aesthetic collection. We need to wait and see whether he will be doing in the Balenciaga with his partnership debuts in March Paris Fashion Week.
8. Raf Simons:
The biggest shock of the last year was Raf Simons exit from the Dior which Simon says that they had a desire for focusing on other interests in their life, which includes his own brand, and the enthusiasm that will drive him outside of his own work. He too added that there is no doubt that he will be expanding that from the namesake line which would include the womenswear.
9. Jack McCollough And Lazaro Hernandez:
The designers of the Proenza Schouler, Jack McCollough, and Lazaro Hernandez were making big leagues. After getting a success in hitting the rare balance of thinking forward and commercially feasible, the brand had sold a minority stake to private equity firm which if a Boston-based of Castanea Partners. We can expect the store openings globally with an expansion into new categories and possibly flashier runway shows in the year 2016.
10. Reed Krakoff:
He is one of the many designers out there who is ready to surprise us with all out shuttering with his label in the month of March. But, after few months he had announced a plan regarding the re-launch with more accessible as well as a commercial business model that are based on things and on the casual items that will be seen on the landing page of his website.
These are the 10 best designers that we need to watch out for their collections in the year 2016. So, wait for their collection and have a look at them.
