first is Oswald boetang is the single most inspirational British designer to me because he not only is a black man,but he is a black male designer at the top of his game with exquisite pieces with a emphasis on cut,colour and tailoring,he utilised his position at saville row as a tailor learnt from them built up a customer base and now he's bigger than some of the older counter parts.
Alexander McQueen his pieces are phenomenal the cut the designs and the fact he seemed to love outrageous materials and cuts as much as i do, I love the way his clothing constantly pushes the boundaries of what is deemed normal attire,the constant pursuit to create something new.
