This time last year, I got my first ever fashion show invitation from Jasper Garvida, and my GOD he has turned it out at every show he's done since. Every season, there is more press, there are more fans, the queues get longer, and Jasper gets better.
I recognized his attention to detail in the headpieces and pleating, and I even saw a crochet dress peeking out that reminded me of S/S 10. However, Jasper also moves his brand forward. This season was very polished, very sparkly, and his dresses and separates have serious red carpet and black tie potential. He gets it SO right - all the pieces feel modern, whimsical, feminine and completely appropriate.
How does he do it....
[Now, WATCH UP (ha). Here's a clip from one of my favourite films, Underground. It's a sweeping, epic Yugoslavian film by Emir Kusturica that shows the two different lives of best friends as a result of World War II,and the life of the woman they both love.]
