Another designer to watch in 2011 is San Diego native Jonathan Cohen. His collection also debuted at New York's Fashion Week back in September, but unlike Gallagher, Cohen likes color, lots of color. His high-priced tops and gowns are bright and vivid, with prints that look like long, smooth brushstrokes of paint. He recently graduated from Parsons School of Design and has interned for several designers, including Oscar de la Renta.
And now for my favorite: the beautiful and creative London designer, Felicity Brown. She graduated with a Masters from the Royal College of Art, and left with several awards, including the Royal Society of Arts Award. Her designs are the epitome of couture and her latest collection was inspired by the paintings by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrecs, which featured flamboyant and provocative women leaning over a bar wearing extravagant silk dresses. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
