DALLAS, Aug 15, 2008 / FW/ — Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Marc Bouwer immigrated to the U.S. armed with a portfolio that won him South Africa Vogue Young Designer Award. It seemed that S.A. Vogue and fashion legend Halston had the same opinion about Marc.

Shortly after arriving in New York, Marc Bouwer met Halston and as if he was making a prediction, the legendary designer said, “I think you got something, kid!”

Working under Halston, Marc refined his skills – from tailoring to cutting and draping. Eventually becoming a master draper, Marc’s draping technique would eventually make him the darling of the fashion set and give rise to one of his signature looks, ‘athletic glamour.’

Launching his own line during the 1990s, Marc Bouwer’s star continue to rise as his creations graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, Oprah, Cosmopolitan, Instyle, Vanity Fair, Glamour and Vibe Magazine among others.

Bouwer was also one of the first adopters of ‘animal free’ collection. In 2002, made fashion history when he presented a collection made completely free of animal products. PETA sponsored the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week show. A PETA Humanitarian Award soon followed.

"Deep and long cracks exalt the body of the interpreter." That terrifying-sounding process, described in the arcane notes that accompanied Aquilano.Rimondi's Spring collection, was fortunately nowhere in evidence on the duo's catwalk. There were, however, deep and long slits that opened up dresses with the seventies-doing-forties line we've seen already this season. Bearing in mind that the seventies were a good decade for Italian fashion and that Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi have sometimes cast themselves as standard-bearers of Italian culture, it made perfect sense that here they enthusiastically dived into the colors, prints, and proportions of that era. The result: an immediate reprieve from the rather less-distinctive collection they had shown for the house of Ferré earlier in the week.

The handsome and youthful model soon graced the covers of two magazines in the same year in 2011: "Hercules Magazine" and "L'Officiel Hommes".

All of the sudden, Fragoso is creating some major buzz. From then on, he has marched the collections for "Givenchy", "D&G" and "Louis Vuitton".
