Joseph Altuzarra Talks CFDA & Birds To I-D Magazine

joseph 11 540x471 Joseph Altuzarra Talks CFDA & Birds To I D Magazine

Joseph Altuzarra, designer and current holder of CFDA’s Swarovski Award for Womenswear, opens up to i-D about winning the award, evolving as a designer, and growing up and in a way that makes you want to pull “a DVF.” You’ll get that reference once you incorporate this into your afternoon reads, and trust me it’s worth it. I’m personally smitten by his definition of kindness in an industry that doesn’t always convey it as being  de rigueur.

The designer also gives us a possible explanation for the birds in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection when talking about his childhood memories:

“I used to spend my summers in California with my grandparents and I went bird watching – which is not the most fun thing to do – but I went with my grandmother and it was so nice to be with her. I still think about that as a really fond memory. I haven’t re-visited the birds though.”

The full interview can be found here. See the full picture on the flip. -Rika N.

OTracyReeseB Obama Runway To Win Ft. Jacobs, Altuzarra, Burch, DVF, Gurung, Etc.

Need an Obama tee-shirt refesh? Vogue editor Anna Wintour came up with the clever plan to raise money for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign by asking her designer pals to come up with a lower-than-normally-priced tee-shirt (or tote bag, or scarf) to be sold on a sub-section of Obama’s campaign site, called Runway To Win. And they all come in a full range of sizes….imagine that, a Marc Jacobs tee in XXXL!

Featured designers include Marc Jacobs, Joseph Altuzurra, Tory Burch, Diane Von Furstenberg, Prabal Gurung, Joseph Altuzarra, Prabal Grunung, Tracy Reese (above), and others, with Alexander Wang’s ”coming soon.”
