Our recent trip to Fashion Week in Vancouver did not only bring us local talents displayed on the runway, we also got to experience what Vancouver Fashion is first-hand with Austin Ottone.
Austin Ottone is the future of exclusive streetwear and is the up-and-coming face of Canadian design. At nineteen years old, Ottone has created his first collection called ONE. It incorporates the elegance of couture, with the style of streetwear. Based out of Vancouver, BC, Ottone is the striving to become the most influential designer of his generation, as we can tell from his jackets.
To be an effective designer you must take a step back and look at the world around you. Social media has brought the world together and this has created the platform for a hybrid fashion brand. Couture has been the most influential example of elegance in the last hundred and fifty years, and has set a standard for what high fashion has become.
Streetwear has emerged from being a status of low class to the future of fashion and is taking over the globe by storm. ONE. was crafted with the idea of turning streetwear into high fashion, by creating one-of-a-kind designs that cannot be replicated on a large scale. Bold colours make a statement, that’s why ONE. chases a variety of different colours in a way that complement the wearer's outfit. This attention to detail is what makes Austin Ottone the future of exclusive streetwear.
