Spiga 2 is an innovative project headed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Now in its third year, the boutique in central Milan, Via Spiga specializes in distributing a pick of promising emerging designers.
Dolce&Gabbana want to support emerging talents by giving them visibility and retail space in an area they would fins difficult to penetrate at the start. This season we’ll focus on some of our favourites. This week: Masha Ma.
Chinese designer Masha Ma concretised her fashion future while studying for the Fashion MA at central Saint Martins. Her future was set once B store bought her entire graduation collection which showed at London fashion Week as part of the CSM graduate show.
The 2013 collection was shown on schedule at Paris Fashion week, and she has won many accolades and an emerging designer. Bold yet intricate in her unravelling of the feminine form, Masha's designs have attracted the attention of publications such as Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Another Magazine, Pop, Cosmopolitan, Marie Clare and L’Officiel.
