Fash­ion is all about op­po­sites. Think, per­haps, of the vis­ual im­pact of a bold geo­met­ric print against pris­tine white fab­ric, or stud­ded femme fa­tale stilet­tos bal­anc­ing out the vir­ginal in­no­cence of a pale­hued lace frock. Pre­view Emerg­ing Fash­ion Tal­ent Awards 2012 de­signer Nina Gatan plays with the sen­sual re­stric­tion of a corset and the mas­culin­ity of a suit, cre­at­ing a gar­ment that tightropes be­tween an­drog­yny and se­duc­tion. Cu­ri­ous? We chat with the young de­signer about struc­ture, tech­nique and tai­lor­ing.
