With only one collection under its belt, and now after seeing number 2, Fall 09, it is starting to settle in that Julian Louie is here to make a mark.  Having worked with Fransisco Costa at Calvin Klien and Tara Subkoff on Imitation of Christ, Julian is no amateur to the fashion industry. His structural designs however are majorly a reflection of his architecture studies at Cooper union prior to switching to fashion. Julian Louie’s paneling, color palettes, and hardware are very much inspired from modern architecture. There is also a very nice element of contrast throughout the collection, with the juxtaposition of hyper construction of sharp and defined lines and more playful pleated silhouettes.
