Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,
Azede Jean-Pierre is a Fashion and Pattern Design graduate from the Savannah College Of Art & Design. Her namesake label was launched in 2009.
The womenswear designer has previously worked for Ohne Titel and describes the essence of her brand as a mixture of androgyny/femininity and delicateness/danger.
Her S/S 12 collection, held in a simple black and white colour palette, showcases the 23-year-old's eye for intriguing details such as fringe tasseling, sheer panelling, triple-pleating and asymmetrical cuts.
Photographed in the Arabia Mountain region of Georgia, the pieces are a clear display of the juxtaposed elements that Jean-Pierre has infused her label's DNA with, and an indication of the promising future that lies ahead for the designer.
