Raffaele Ascione

All I can say is this guy is amazing. A few weeks ago in college we had the pleasure of meeting him. He gave us some very inspiring and inspirational talks. He is a London based designer and he started his fashion journey when he moved from Germany to Ireland to study Fashion, Design and Textiles in Limerick Senior, the college which I am currently studying in. After this two years he went on to do a BA in wemonswear design at UCA Rochester.It was during these three years he interned with London designers and gained even more experience. It wasn't until after completion of his BA that things really took off for him, he got picked up by the Italian fashion house Max Mara. After working one year full time with them he decided to do a MA at the prestigious Central Saint Martins college in London and after a lot of hard work it paid off because he now has his own label. You can check out some of his collections on his website here http://raffaeleascione.com/.  He also has a celebrity following with singers such as Lady Gaga and Jessie J wearing his designs.

His latest S/S 13 Collection was showcased at London Fashion week with a debuting powerful Runway Show. He approached new elements to push his aesthetic into new directions. Raffaele Ascione reinvents luxe fabrics with neon and sequin detailing. The Central Saint Martin's graduate takes inspiration from Fruit of the Loom sweatshirts developing his graduate work for this Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Here I have posted a clip of his runway show at London Fashion week.
