Net-A-Porter has unveiled the latest set of designers to join its Vanguard program. The new quartet includes Christopher John Rogers, Gauchere, Ioannes and S. Joon.
“Selected for their unique design aesthetic and visual perspective,” they’ll receive a comprehensive 360-degree mentorship by the luxury e-tailer’s global team of specialists, “ultimately supporting their long-term development into successful and sustainable businesses,” the company said.
The labels are exclusive to Net-A-Porter for the SS20 season and their presence on the site will be supported by a campaign “shining a light on the design talent behind each label alongside their muses”. That campaign launches today.
So who are the new names? Christopher John Rogers was the 2019 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund winner and is known for his vibrant use of color and dramatic silhouettes. The Brooklyn-based designer “brings a refreshing and whimsical take on the evening through cascading silky dresses, elegant pleated skirts, and exciting opulent shapes,” Net-A-Porter said.
