Looking for what’s next in up-and-coming design talent? You probably won’t find it in stores or even at this year’s trade shows, as many of the most innovative fashion folks are still in the gestation stage- waiting to emerge to the world as the beautiful aesthetic butterflies that they really are. Hailing from powerhouse art design centers like Parsons, The New School (New York), the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Central Saint Martins at the University of the Arts in London, or the Vantan Design Institute in Tokyo, the new guard of design talent is just waiting to plucked from pseudo-obscurity and thrust into the spotlight. It’s with this idea that fresh tome NEW ON THE CATWALK has appeared to showcase 38 young (though already somewhat known) international designers. Written by acclaimed lifestyle, fashion and design expert Patrice Farameh, and including a probing interview with Simon Collins, Director of Parsons The New School for Design, the book seeks to reveal what qualities and talents will transform a graduate of one of these fashion schools into a creator and genuine power-player within the fashion world. In addition the book also highlights the actual work of these designers who have already been lauded internationally for their distinctive qualities and unique approaches.

NEW ON THE CATWALK also promotes these designers through informed descriptions and quotations, and short interviews with the fresh talent themselves. Coming as part of a lavish large-format 400-page publication from DAAB Verlag, the publication presents a new-generation of designers – such as Athens-born wunderkind Mary Katrantzou, New Yorkers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, Budapest’s Dora Mojzes, London’s Elisa Palomino, and German twins Felder Felder, and describes how they are using their education and experience (in addition to raw talent and entrepreneurial spirit) to break into this competitive field.
