Editor-in-Chief Vivian Van Dijk has reviewed this book that was represented at Book Expo America in New York recently:
"The book 100 New Fashion Designers by Hywel Davies gives an excellent overview of established and emerging fashion designers that are contributing to today's exciting trendy and fashionable landscape out there. For students in fashion design, followers of the latest trends and fashion plus design lovers from all over the world, this book is a guideline that shows you a variety of cultural, social and design influences that make up for today's field of how we dress."
"Visual collages show the variety of colors, shapes of fashion designs that have presented a new vision for fashion since the millennium. The major common denominator in the book in between all fashion designers is the amount of innovation they have put in their designs while keeping in mind the quality of the designs. Fashion is timeless innovation and this book is the proof of it. Enjoy reading!"

More About the Book
Author Hywel Davies defines the new fashion generation and uncovers 100 radical new designers who are each fulfilling important individual roles as innovators in the industry such as Ashish, Aitor Throup and Meadham/Kirchhoff. In his opening essay, Davies discusses the fashion institutions and capital cities that nurture the talents of tomorrow. He then goes on to highlight the importance of other fashion initiatives, set up to promote new designers after they leave college, and questions whether too much support could eventually saturate the market.
This book showcases designers who are in the first decade of their careers, either working alone on their own label or brand or teamed up into small companies collaborating on collections. This new generation of talented designers is defined by an eagerness to present a unique and personal philosophy of clothing and fashion design.
In 100 New Fashion Designers the diverse and unique work of the best 100 new creatives in fashion design from around the world is showcased with photographs, sketches and illustrations alongside interviews and commentary. 100 New Fashion Designers is the ultimate reference guide to the world’s upcoming talent in fashion today!
