As you know I like to do, I was browsing around Elle.com's "Need to Know Designers" section today and this name came up: Moises de la Renta. The adopted son of the infamous Oscar de la Renta has recently entered the fashion business designing his own line called MDLR.
Moises hadn't been interested in fashion his whole life, like many of us are. He attended Marymount Manhattan College studying Communications for two years before he decided to drop about to take an internship at Phat Farm. Phat Farm is a line led by Russell Simmons, the founder of the modern day hip-hop movement, designed as a symbol of men's contemporary American culture. After that internship, he moved to his father's studio to work as an assistant. And before you know it, the T-shirts he designed were walking down the runway and became one of the hits of the collection.
He now has branched off on his own ad recently launched his first collection for MDLR. It definitely reminds me of the punk-grunge fashion that I've seen here in London and I think it's great! Here are a couple of pics:
