From All-American Attire to Recession Inspired Fashion

 - Feb 12, 2013
These daring Derek Lam runways have been introduced to those who stand at the fore of the fashion industry via New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week events, productions that are reflective of the labels success among shoppers, critics and photographers.

All-American attire and recession inspired fashion lines have been showcased to the public by way of Lam's catwalks. The designer is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design and a former Michael Kors assistant. His distinguished background resonates with his couture shows, and it as such follows that he has remained markedly artistic. This has become apparent via his inclusion of diverse themes, seen in 1940s style, gladiator-esque motifs and stone age decor.
