Charles Anastase's move to couture
Illustrator turned stylist turned designer Charles Anastase has just announced he is leaving ready-to-wear for couture. The London-based designer of French-Armenian descent has been invited by the Chambre Syndicale to show this July
Anastase has been working as an artist since 2000 and came to prominence after a Calvin Klein underwear campaign featured his illustrations. He was awarded a 50000E prize from the Ministère de la Culture in France which helped him put on his first show in Paris, an Alice in Wonderland-themed collection.
