Today the Business of Fashion released their list of the top 50 most creative forces in the fashion world. The New Creative Establishment was topped with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot. Having shot gorgeous editorials for Vogue, W, and Interview magazine and top designer campaigns including Givenchy, Chanel, Stella McCartney, and Gucci, they have become the magic touch for those who have worked with them.
Second on the list was none other than my favorite designer Pheobe Philo, creative director at Celine. She is credited with giving Celine the biggest boost since Tom Ford's innovative take to Gucci.
Nicolas Ghesqiere took the third spot as creative director at Balenciaga. Season after season he continues to set the bar for unexpected innovation that smoothly translates into every-day wear. It is unbelievable how he continues to conquer at another level. I feel like each season he makes a mark that reminds me of everything else that comes out.
