LaQuan may only be 23 years old, but he has been making waves in the fashion industry since jumping on the scene in the late 2000s, designing custom garments for Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce and Tyra. LaQuan has had several collections under his eponymous label, but decided to move in a decidedly futuristic direction for spring 2012. The collection, titled “Robotic Dream,” is an extension of 2011’s “Eclipse” and features neon brights, a healthy dose of beige, and lots of black. Oh, and since LaQuan used neoprene as the dominant fabric, many of the pieces are waterproof! We see this coming in handy for a lot of style mavens enjoying drunken nights.
During our behind-the-scenes video shoot, we not only chatted with LaQuan, but also makeup artist Sir John Barnett and hairstylist Dante Blandshaw. Both artists cohesively transformed model AM, of Muse Model Agency, into a chic, beautiful and edgy alien — the ultimate being to embody LaQuan’s modernized edge aesthetic!
