Fashion meets Art

Im guessing many of you are famililar with this dress as any avid xfactor fan would have seen Cheryl Cole sporting it on 'rock weeks' live show, however many may not be familar with the designer behind it.

Designer David Koma is a Central Saint Martins Fashion Graduate, and in the extremely short space of time since his graduation in March 2009 has already achieved great success with two collections heading down the runway. His first including the dress above, was a collection of sculptural, body-conscious dresses embellished with metal tubes and multicoloured chains which won Harrods Design Award.

At the moment though I'm particularly enjoying his spring/summer 2010 collection for which he took inspiration from artist Niki de Saint Phalle. This crossing of disciplines and sharing of ideas is something that we have seen quite a lot lately and it is likely to continue into the next few seasons. The collection still incorporates his metal tubing details but with bright colours and large bold prints. Looking forward to see whats next!!
