Alexander Koutny

One of my favourite South African designers- although he is no longer based in SA- is exhibiting at The Royal Academy of the Arts in London. He is a master patternmaker that studied at St Martins and is making a huge splash in London and New York. Alexander uses geometry and stylised structural silhouettes to create a darkly organic form.
All I can say is that I wish he was available here, these draped and pleated dresses are truly beautiful!
