Designer Spotlight: Wes Gordon

Southern romance meets modern couture in this newcomer’s collections. Wes Gordon, a former Tom Ford and Oscar De La Renta intern, entered the fashion industry in 2009 with impressive talent. Gordon’s love for classic Southern style and luxe feminine wear have become the perfect recipe for a unique, high-fashion line.

His collections represent elegant women with silk blouses, wide legged pants and long gowns that complement every feminine aspect of their bodies.

“I think now, ladies are looking for something more put together and polished,” Gordon said in an interview with Bergdorf Goodman.

Gordon’s inspiration comes from numerous outlets. Being born in Chicago, having interned in London, growing up in Atlanta and currently living in New York, he has gained a diverse outlook on style.

“I love historical fashion, 1950s couture, and these ideas of elegance and the spirit of glamour,” Gordon said in an interview with blogger and journalist Tom Kolovos. “[Yet], I am very much a product of my generation and today.”

The rich, silk fabrics of his 2012 fall/winter collection embody a Southern belle, while his mix of lace and sequins give his collection a Rock 'n' Roll twist.

“[Gordon has] uptown fabrics with sort of a downtown feel to [them],” Kolovos said.

From fashionistas with edgy taste to ladies with sophisticated style, anyone can find love within his collections. The diversity of Gordon’s brand has reeled in the interests of celebrities with many different kinds of styles. Pop superstar Katy Perry, “Pretty Little Liars” Lucy Hale and first lady Michelle Obama are just a few famous faces who have rocked several of Gordan’s pieces.

Three short years into the fashion industry, and Gordon is already off to a great start. With the continuing positive exposure from celebrities and media outlets, women all over the world are sure to fall in love with his collections.
