New season, new fantasies. The next wave of fashion all about pushing limits, and these six designers do just that. From their daring headpieces to playful experimentations with color and texture, the new vanguard of designers are taking fashion in a bold direction, down the path first explored by Off-White's Virgil Abloh. Continuing along Abloh's journey are his imaginative Off-White, sustainable trendsetter Kevin Germanier, fluid storyteller Harris Reed, surrealist Jonathan Anderson, textile explorer Richard Quinn, and couture enchantress Miss Sohee. Each designer is a true visionary, and their work brings fashion's wildest fantasies to life.
