New Yorker Mathieu Mirano a New Yorker at only 20 years old is launching his own line. "Creating something from scratch isn't always easy, and sometimes you have to be patient and wait for it," says Mirano. Using high fashion level crafting techniques and handmade embellishments, Mirano gravitates towards exotic skins, sequin embroideries, and elaborate applique detailing.
“Heroic, legendary, feminine dragon riders” inspired his Spring ‘12 collection. We may not see any literal, fire-breathing references in the clothes, but who wouldn't want to wear a gown with a sci-fi back story, especially with the The Hunger Games gaining such a cult fashion following?
The designer’s presentation will be at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Lincoln Center on February 12th.
