New, New York, Talent: Julian Louie

>> Being known as a protege of Francisco Costa doesn't hurt — especially when you're showing your first-ever collection. Julian Louie's fifteen sculptural pieces reeled in the likes of Kate Lanphear and Hamish Bowles last week — and they left with glimmers in their eyes, mirroring those of the Swarovski crystals embedded on Julian's dresses. The bright colors, innovative fabrics (neoprene!), and cocoon shapes reminded me of something that would appear at London rather than New York Fashion Week — even a touch of Christopher Kane's first collection — but nevermind, I'm glad to have a talent like his stateside.
