I first met Michael in high school. We both went to different schools, but played in District Orchestra together. Then he left District 2 to finish high school at the SC Governor’s School for the Arts and the Humanities. I would hear little bits and pieces about him over the years via friends, the internet, and Facebook.

Facebook is where I actually found him again, just the other day. I saw pictures from his new collection pop up on my timeline, and knew I had to check them out. His clothes are beyond gorgeous, and I am not just saying that because I know him. They really are amazing. The deconstructed looks truly show how talented this self taught designer really is. Oh and if you’re wondering…the green dress is my favorite!

Washington Roberts-New Designer

Washington Roberts
I met Washington Roberts at a nice little industry tweet-up (set up by Ope) at Taj in NYC . He showed me some pictures of his work and I was blown away. Washington is very young, yet his work is really mature and sophisticated. His pieces are made with lush fabrics for the women who has places to be. You can tell by his designs that he has a clear vision and already has his customer in mind. Even though the pieces look fancy, I saw a lot of basics for the women who needs to move between work during the day and the gala at night.

My favorite piece is the silk creme tuxedo, but I love the dresses, top, and skirts too. I can just see people doing so many things with his recent collection. The colors are great too because they give you variety. There are some neutrals and some bright colors which make it great to mix or match. He is very talented, and I think we will be seeing more of him shortly.

LaQuan Smith’s Water Goddess

Don’t forget to enter in the Maurices Tote Contest!

LaQuan Smith is getting everyone from the New York Times to Andre Leon Talley to notice his clothes. They have been seen on many celebrities including Cassie. He is only 21 years old, but the buzz around him is crazy. The clothes are hip, cute, sexy, sassy, and sophisticated. I think we will see these clothes on many more celebs and red carpets soon. His “Water Goddess” collection for A/W 2010 is tresmazing, and the lookbook is modeled by Sessilee Lopez. Loves it.
