This 2012 editorial from Portuguese designer Valentim Quaresma and photographer Rui Soares Esteves is eye-catching to say the least. In person, the outfits Quaresma adorns his models with might just poke somebody in the eye though.
It is painfully apparent that if one isn't cutting through the noise in the fashion world, they probably aren't furthering their career. One needs to be sharp, on point and on the cutting edge to prosper.
The concepts featured here are anything but conventional. They may not be the best thing to wear in a crowded subway (for fear of lawsuits) but on the runway, they will pierce through the competition. Many designers would be grateful just to have a slice of Quaresma's talent. But they shouldn't go tearing themselves to shreds just yet; practice makes perfect and looking at this couture, it is apparent their maker has honed his craft to the point of mastery.
