I thought it was about time I wrote a post about one of my all time favourite designers Antonio Berardi.
Berardi was born in 1968 in Grantham, UK. His father came to England from Sicily in the 1950′s. He had an interest in fashion from a young age.
He had a job assisting at John Galliano’s while he tried to gain a place on the Fashion BA course at Central Saint Martins in London, he was finally accepted in 1990.
In 1994, he started his own label and showed his début collection in 1995. His début collection was bought buy by Liberty.
His collections have been very well received on the catwalks of London and Milan. I love his designs because they are so unusual and fantastically constructed. Below are some of my favourite designs.
Berardi is a designer fascinated by technical achievement and his show stopping pieces-a coat decorated with dozens of tiny light bulbs that illuminate to form a crucifix-support his opinion that, in pursuit of glamour, nothing is impossible.

Dame Vivienne Westwood was born in 1941 in Derbyshire, England.
Westwood is best known for her huge influence on the British punk scene. The Sex Pistols wore clothes from Vivienne Westwoods shop at their first gig.
The ‘Punk Style’ is very unique. It includes elements such as safety pins, razor blades, spiked dog collars on jewellery as well as outrageous make-up and hair. Scottish tartan fabric is also widely used.
Her designs are fantastic and unusual, below is a video of her 2010 collection which shows her quirky yet feminine style.
