With support from Nike, Fashion East have unveiled their A/W 22 lineup, formed of three young designers who all communicate the defining visual language of London's fashion scene today. So who exactly are they? If you've been a long-time follower of Fashion East, you may be familiar with their names already as all aren't total newbies; Maximilian Davis, Jawara Alleyne and Chet Lo.
During their ascendance under Fashion East, the trio have been lauded by the world's fashion press. Asian-American Chet Lo was described as 'boundary-breaking' by British Vogue, whilst AnOther recounted Jamaican-Caymanian Jawara Alleyne designs as 'challenging mainstream perceptions of masculinity by celebrating sensuality and dissecting cultural mythology.' As for Maximilian Davis, the breakout star whose A/W 22 showing will be his fourth, was told of having 'a compelling mix of technical skill and sleek design' by Imran Amed's Business of Fashion.
Sprouting talents like Wales Bonner, Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, Matty Bovan, Mowalola and JW Anderson over the years, we have a feeling Fashion East's legacy is only going to get bigger and better thanks to their carefully chosen latest trio.
Fashion East will present a physical show as part of London Fashion Week on Sunday, 20 February.
