Andrew GN Fall-Winter 2018-19 Paris. Drawing inspiration from the East and West, Singaporean designer Andrew GN designs opulent eveningwear with a distinctive, modern edge. His early beginnings at the prestigious Central Saint Martins ignited an attention to details that can be seen gracing his lavish cocktail dresses and gowns in the form of intricate embroidery, colorful floral appliqués and lace trims. Andrew GN fuses artisanal craftsmanship and lustrous fabrics to create exquisite ready-to-wear garments imbued with an air of haute couture. Boasting a cult following that spans the celebrity spectrum – the designer counts Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jennifer Lopez and Emma Stone as fans – Andrew Gn defies expectation, offering a unique and modern take on eveningwear.
Andrew is not a designer who withholds on extravagance. Among the inner fashion circles and glitterati, he is admired for his no-holds-barred approach to embellishment. Such attention to details would result in the creation of Byzantine jewel closure on a cardigan, rock crystals sewn on jackets, tiny pheasant-feather collars on tweed, floral appliqués, cashmere coat with a chin-grazing white fox collar, bubble dress with fringes of gold chain and antique lace as trim on skirt suits and silk camisoles. He is definitely one designer who knows how to pamper his customers.
