Georgia born David Koma is a 24-year-old with talent. His geometry-inspired debut collection was daring and delightful – and did not disappoint.
If I had a wardrobe filled with Koma’s body con dresses, I’d be a happy woman. I love his sculptured shapes, tight-fitting and heavily embellished pieces – with pure wool, leather and suede materials and asymmetric detailing. The runway is certainly a colourful place with this young designer around – he makes great use of colour and his stained glass statement jewellery is fabulous.
Fame suits Koma. He’s gone from strength to strength since winning the Harrods Design award with his 2009 MA Graduate Collection at Central Saint Martins. I’ll be strutting my stuff in one of his masterpieces soon – and you can too after a trip to Browns – or www.davidkoma.com. I can’t wait until his next show – Alexander Wang has big competition.
