Designer Spotlight: Jose Duran
By Claire

So while here in Paris, I’ve been meeting and greeting lots of fashionable up and comers, including designer Jose Duran:

A native of the Dominican Republic, Duran creates sexy, sophisticated dresses and separates with techniques so chic he’s been dubbed the next Alexander McQueen:

I visited his atelier today by Montmartre where we chit chatted a bit about his collection. He said, “I use lots of sheer, free hand drapes, and various cuts to offer something different and appealing.

Citing Grace Jones as a style inspiration he said, “I can see my pieces on anyone from Beyonce to Amy Winehouse.”

New York press has caught on, and Jose Duran’s pieces have been featured in Ebony and Giant Magazines (Yes that’s Madame Iman, wearing a white Duran creation):

The next step for Jose? “Showing in Paris or New York Fashion Week.” I think he can do it!
