Its no secret that Wes Gordon has cast quite a spell on the New York fashion scene. Only a few years out of Central Saint Martins, he has not only already won a Rising Star Award, but also, he has been named as one of this year's CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund nominees. It's a trajectory so quick that it wouldn't be surprising if Gordon sometimes found himself wondering what kind of magical forces might be at work helping him along.
Not that he should. His Spring 2013 lineup, with its dark drama and subtly undone elegance, was plenty enchanting in its own right, and it's clear that Gordon has his own innate talent to thank for that.
