Up-and-coming designer and Francisco Costa protégé Julian Louie is profiled in NYM this week. "This past September, he had his first show in New York, during which he presented a surprisingly focused, coherent collection of fifteen minidresses that can best be described as scuba gear—for evening. It’s the sort of idea that could, in lesser hands, go very, very wrong. But Louie pulled it off, impressing both fashion editors and Sarah Jessica Parker, who was spotted at his show."
