Today we continue with our mission of bringing you the world’s best emerging designer labels direct from the shows.
No need to take a plane to Paris to attend the most influential trade shows the industry has to offer: Tranoï, Capsule, Woman, Premiere Class and MeMy Mode. We took the plane for you and went in pursuit of the designers you will not want to miss out on next Fall.
Cecilia Ma is one of the hottest emerging labels to come out of Hong Kong and a firm favourite at Paris trade shows. We met her and her designs at Who’s Next Paris earlier this year and fell in love with her gorgeous jewellery designs and fresh fashion.
As you can see her innovative bag designs scream urban edgy chic. This is a label that would be perfect for any fresh and contemporary boutique that is looking to stock high quality, intriguing and sophisticated products.

Claudia brings you knitwear handmade in Bolivia from the world’s finest alpaca fiber which makes touching and wearing the pieces feel like a luxurious experience. The products are perfect for buyers looking for something authentic and made from the most exquisite materials.
We met up with one of the co-founders of French Silk scarf label Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre at Capsule showcasing one of her own pieces, perfect for adding a splash of colour and elegance to any look. We were so impressed by the quality and feel of the materials she uses as well as the variety of colours and prints.
Here was one of our favourites: the Pampus scarf from the Hortus Collection.
ffiXXed is a collaborative fashion label who blew us away with their utility chic fashion pieces which fuse art with design.
The label was initiated by artist and designers Kain Picken and Fiona Lau who is pictured left when she caught up with AGORIQUE’s co-founder at Capsule.
Iben Hoj is a Danish knitwear designer who has worked with labels like Marc Jacobs, Marni and Donna Karan.
We met up at Capsule and got a feel for her collection which incorporates scandochic attention to detail and effortless elegance in pieces that use the finest quality of knitwear and includes touches of lace and embroidery. Oozing femininity.
At Premiere Classe we got the chance to meet New York based jewelery label WXYZ and its founder Laura. She filled us in on the foundations of her label. The hand crafted pieces are inspired by the shapes we see in science, art and industrial designs and use unconventional materials and innovative production methods.
As you can see these pieces are perfect for boutiques that aren’t afraid to be stand out and who cater to a cutting edge clientele.
BORNE BY ELISA BERGER
At Tranoï we had the pleasure of meeting up with the label borne by Elise Berger.
borne by Elise Berger is an idiosyncratic and charismatic label headed by designer Elise Berger which encompasses everything from edgy pieces to luxurious silk floral shirts. Breathtaking and unique.
Borne products all have one common characteristic, they are bursting with soul, personality and character making them perfect for a young and trend setting clientele.
