I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with Gilt Group but essentially they are an online retail store that partners up with brands and designers to bring you quality clothing at discounted prices. Recently I stumbled across their Youtube channel and watched some of their videos.
My favorite video is this one on Nicola Formichetti, Lady Gaga’s designer and house designer of Thierry Mugler. Besides his amazing work with Mugler and Lady Gaga I love Formichetti because he also made Rick Genest a notable fashion model within the past year. Rick Genest is better known as Rico the Zombie, a heavily tattooed freak show performer who Formichetti turned into a runway and print model.
All in all I have fallen in love with Nicola Formichetti in the past year, his style and designs are hardcore yet upscale. He’s different than most designers & stylists because he has the ability to step beyond the cliche fashion world and bring a real punk aesthetic to high end clothing.
