Heralded for his sustainable approach to fashion, 2018 marks the debut of Central Saint Martins graduate Kevin Germanier’s eponymous label: Germanier. The focus is on luxury upcycled fabrics with arresting details, such as discarded beads that the designer found during a work placement in Hong Kong, a prize for winning the Redress Award in 2015. Germanier eschews the homespun connotations for which eco-friendly fashion is known and instead draws inspiration from a futuristic vision of utopia. Look out for sculptural jackets, glitter-strewn dresses and sharply spliced skirts.
Germanier garments have been worn by many international celebrities including Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Kristen Stewart, Björk or Sunmi. Germanier's business has also be named 30 under 30 by forbes in 2020 in the category Europe - Arts and Culture, participated in LVMH prize as a semi-finalist in 2019 and the ANDAM Prize in 2018.
