FWQ: gian romano

gian romano has always been known as an avant-garde designer, so we were quite surprised to see his name in the lineup for fashion watch quartet. but the thing about gian is that his designs have always been WEARABLE avant-garde. and his pieces are not crazy, wacky, over-the-top, shock-for-the-sake-of-shock showpieces, but there is a thought process and actual design and construction behind them. you can buy an outfit straight off the model's back and wear it out of the venue without the designer having to tone it down or edit it. the winner of mega's young designers competition in 2004 can now be removed from the "young" category and be moved into "estalished." (sorry, we forgot our camera at home and had to rely on the pix taken by the official photog from last tuesday's show. so there are some pieces we wanted to show but don't have.)

short dresses with panels cut and sewn in twisty ways to skim the body:
slim-cut trousers with tops and jackets that will add character to any outfit:
and actual gowns! deceptively simple but a closer look reveals nips and tucks in the right places that they fall in such a way that flatter the body:

I can see the influence with his time with AsFOUR (well now THREEasFOUR). I'm in love with muted color palette but I'm not crazy about fit and length of certain items. Very modern though, so kudos to that.
