Contemporary designers in relation to my make

by Sophea

Sophia Kokosalaki is a great example of grecian style draping and bias cutting. She led Vionnet from 2006-2007 and has recently launched her bridal fashions which is a step for her out of ready to wear. It is obvious that her style has been informed by that of Madeleine Vionnet.

Issey Miyake is also another great contemporary designer who has been influenced by Vionnet. He, like Vionnet, sculpts the fabric around the body, whether that be by draping, bias cutting or creating unusual silhouettes off of the body. Miyake is one of my favourite designers and really is a craftsman when it comes to his use of fabric.
