Designer in the spotlight- Charles Anastase

Charles Anastase originally studied Political Sciences before embarking upon his career as an illustrator. His work travelled the world in a series of exhibitions before he landed the chance to illustrate an advertising campaign for Calvin Klein in 2004.

His first fashion collection showed in Paris in 2005 to mixed reviews. In 2009 he moved to London with this collection being a nod to the first collection in Paris but this time it had so much more definition and he knew what he wanted to say with the clothes. Charles’ designs are a beautiful mix of sweet innocence with the floaty dresses and sheer materials with a sharp blend of tailoring which would be right at home on Savile Row. Charles’ dresses the likes of Chloe Sevigny, Keira Knightley and Alexa Chung.

Charles is easily one of my favourite designers, his designs have that perfect level of French chic without being a cliché or too twee. Whilst finding images for a first year university project I found Charles Anastase and fell in love and his collections have continued to wow me- I always look forward to his shows.
