i-D Meets: London’s Rising Fashion Stars

Enter the weird and wonderful worlds of four CSM grads turned fashion’s brightest young things. Step inside Istanbul-born, London-based rebel Dilara Findikoglu’s cabinet of curiosities, rub a wishing stone with Rottingdean Bazaar’s James Theseus Buck and Luke Brooks, and peer into designer, illustrator and make-up maestro Matty Bovan’s kaleidoscopic diary of everyday outfits. Shaking up the capital’s fashion scene from afar, each designer is a non-compromising, multi-tasking collaborator of the creative resistance.

During this time of socio-political uncertainty, their journeys remind us of the importance of being brave, breaking rules and delighting in difference – defying expectations and fighting for what you believe in.

  1. The English have nooooo sense of design to me, sorry. Only few came out with great talents such as Alexander McQueen, Galliano…. even Vivienne Westwood was either hit or miss.

  2. "I hate real life." ….sigh- I'd say looking at her (and most the others) its pretty obvious… a real artists loves life and seeks truth-period. These people in the 'fashion' business are the epitome of degenerate, no talent and ugly

  3. Thankyou for this little piece of just a little bit of the talent in the world. We can't fit everyone into one show. So it was nice to focus on these people and I hope more designers will get their chance on screen.. few do .. ever.
    I was massively inspired to continue my own efforts & thanks for posting this :))

  4. I really resonate with what Dilara said about wanting more magic in this world. I find that our current reality is so boring but it has the potential to be so great, and it's finding people who feel the same and expressing those ideas with others that make it more achievable. And yes, being brave is so important!! A lot of people can have different ideas but it's when we are brave enough to wear our ideas that truly make a difference. That's for the video, i-D mag! ❤️

  5. Interesting video. Today I actually have a model casting. I live in Los Angeles, and I have been organizing and executing fashion shows to there best of my ability since my sophomore year of high school. I am now working on my Men's and Women's Spring Summer 2018. Honestly fashion is a very lux and superficial industry. Money is necessary. Whether it comes from your pocket, or the pocket of a more privileged person looking to invest and score money off of your talent; it is tough. I still have been working alone always, and I orchestrate a runway show annually.

    Being a young Mexican American or anyone who is young trying to make it alone is tough. Nowadays, most pretentious privileged people call themselves designers or artists and can't do a thing. Only direct. I do it all. Draft a pattern, sew the sample, construct there garment, sketch (horribly), design. But it seems even with talent, it is very difficult to make it. I am on this lonely path and still learning g so much as I continue to grow. My developing label is called destacarse. 

    My young advise for anyone trying to make it and become a designer or start your own label is to try to do as much as you can on your own, so that you can operate your vision and brand to the best that you can. Money is the easiest and most lucrative way to make it. Look at all these idolized designers, they all had a financial or network advantage, literally.I really wish you all the best on your fashion career journey!

     My instagram account is 0h.w0w (zero's instead of "O's"), visit my label's Youtube channel at: Destacars Designs,. Once my two strongest collections are shown and completed, I will upload the video of the runway and work on two fashion films.

    Have a great day and don't give up!
