ZDDZ BY DASHA SELYANOVA

By Lee Carter for Style.com

There's something about a group show that brings out a festive spirit. At VFiles tonight—following a feel-good video message about togetherness from top model Carolyn Murphy—four relatively unknown men's and women's designers from around the world each presented a mini-collection to encouraging hoots and hollers from the audience. The receptive crowd included plenty of colorful downtown stars and Tumblr sensations, as well as enough bold-faced mentors—most notably, Calvin Klein's men's creative director Italo Zucchelli, who was all smiles—to keep the fresh-faced young things giddy with excitement well into the wee hours. Or, however late the VFiles x Def Jam DJ Championship, which doubled as the after-party, raged on. 

The democratic process of allowing designers anywhere to upload pictures and videos of their work to VFiles naturally favors extremes in shapes, colors, and concepts. The first and most promising of the group, Tigran Avestiyan, exhibited these in spades. The graduate of Central Saint Martins in London, who returned to his native Russia to found his label, based his collection on five actual bottles of name-brand fragrances he bought from duty-free stores in airports and fused them together into one unwieldy bottle that his models carried in clear plastic bags. They also wore tunics and shorts with a mishmash of crinkles and flashes of the words "Duty Free"—just enough to suggest cellophane packaging. The designer's message, that of the corruptive, corrosive nature of globalism, came through loud and clear. "It's good to be outside of fashion, seeing it from a distance," he said with a grin backstage, quickly adding, "Not that I wouldn't love to work in New York!" 

Next up was Hye Gin Hamm. Graduating from Parsons earlier this year, she drew inspiration from, she said, "a mix of American and Korean cultures," specifically, American denim and bulky silhouettes evocative of traditional Korean monks. Careful hand-bleaching of each oversized and layered item gave the collection an alluringly timeless, placeless quality. Showings by ZDDZ's Dasha Selyanova, another Russian, and Detto Kazuma of D.TT.K, both of whom produced highly graphic, slightly athletic collections, rounded out the very international showcase. 

Given the excellent IRL platform of VFiles, which is only a year old, it'll be interesting to see how these young hopefuls matriculate through the global fashion system. "It was challenging to choose four designers out of the hundreds who entered," said founder Julie Anne Quay, "but we work closely with our community and mentors [to look] for a point of view, salability, quality, and that's something special."

VFiles Announces the New Group of Designers Showing at Its Spring 2015 NYFW Show

BY KARIZZA SANCHEZ FOR COMPLEX.COM

VFiles' New York Fashion Week show is returning this fall with a whole new crop of talent. 

The online fashion community just announced the roster for its spring 2015 show, and it looks like audiences will be treated to collections by talents from around the world. On Sept. 3, Moscow-based Tigran Avetisyan of Tigran and Tokyo-based Detto Kazuma of DTTK, both menswear labels, as well as  New York-based Hygein Hamm of denim label Hamm, and London-based Dasha Selyanova of womenswear label ZDDZ will show their lines in a show that has become a marquee event on the NYFW calendar. The talent was chosen by the VFiles team, with help from Calvin Klein creative director Italo Zucchelli, fashion editor and Vogue editor-at-large Candy Pratts Price, and stylist Mel Ottenberg—industry experts who'll also act as judges and mentors for the program. 

VFiles made its NYFW debut last September, with designers Gypsy Sport, Ammerman Schlösberg, Steven Tai and Sam Mc. In February, it presented its VFILES MADE FASHION 2 show, which introduced Hyein Seo, Melitta Baumeister, and ASSK, who have since been co-signed by Rihanna

You can always count on VFiles to help put people on the map. 

Look out for select pieces from Tigram, DTTK, Jamm, and ZDDZ at VFiles' SoHo shop after the show.

Mathieu Mirano | Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week | Fall/Winter 2014

Hair by Rita Marmor for Oribe Hair Care; Umbrella Team Christian Ceja

After the debut of his second collection last season, Mathieu Mirano had established himself as a luxurious womenswear designer with an eye for sophistication and glamour. But for his third collection and first ever runway show, the young designer worked some tougher elements like fur and leather into his elegant designs to give his girl more of an edge. This contrast extended to the hair as well. "You get the best of both worlds with this look," said Rita Marmor, lead hairstylist for Oribe Hair Care, backstage at Lincoln Center. Rita created a low ponytail with lots of natural texture paired with a sleek, polished front. "You get the luxurious feeling from the glossy front and a roughness from the ponytail," Rita explained. "We did a center parting, which emphasizes a really strong woman, but she still has a little softness and coolness about her." (Oribe.com)
