Ragne Kikas

You need to know about Ragne Kikas.  She’s 27 years old, based in Hamburg, and recently won the Festival International de Mode et de Photographie which is held every year in Hyères, France.  Though you may not have heard of it, it’s a pretty big deal.  It’s kind of like France’s equivalent to the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.  Karl Lagerfeld has been a judge and Viktor & Rolf is a past winner.  Her knitwear designs are nothing short of amazing, as illustrated below by her winning collection, “Dress Code Defensive” which was based upon armor.  Sculptural, 3-D, and super cool.  I’ve honestly never seen anything like it.  Kikas is surely destined for big things, so don’t be surprised if you see her name popping up more and more down the road.
