    1. Six and Seven Eighths (Antonio Ciutto and David Wojtowycz) It focuses on technique, research and pattern cutting to produce dramatic and radical ideas for clothing. 

    Research is what defines each season or collection. At that stage I try to surround myself with what I understand to be the right stuff for that season, including good books, flims and images. 

    I usually revisit those whom I consider the great masters of all time: Vionnet, Charles James, Balenciaga and Dior. 

    I am never interested in just a visual or surface thing, but rather the process behind the creation of that thing. 

    2. Aimee McWilliams (She is known for her forward-thinking approach to fashion design, and throgh creative pattern cutting and the imaginative use of fabric, she creates avant-garde clothing.)

    Research is constant. I don't necessarily research in order to start a project. It's something that I am constantly doing in one way or another. 

    3. Aitor Throup (innovative menswear designer)

    In general, I usually research new solutions to the problems I invent (in terms of design) through storytelling and illustration. The result of the explorative and experimental process is the product, the final design.

    The enjoyable and valuable, part of the research process is when you don't feel like you are doing research, when you are simply exposing yourself to things that interest you or inspire you in some way. 

    My design process is 50% inventing unique situations that create unique problems and 50% finding equally unique ways to solve those problems. 

    4. Alice Temperley (she has bcome synonymous with glamoure, craftsmanship and beautiful fabrics, she is renowned for her prints, embroideries and acute attention to detail)

    I start by gathering story ideas and I build my collection's mood around print, color, detail and embellishments. Then I design into each story, working oout how the muse would wear the clothes.

    5. Antonio Marras for Kenzo (artistic director of Kenzo)

    My creative process is a compromise between new and old. A balance between memories and future, traditions and experimens. 

    My starting point is always the same: an accurate research of materials and fabrics and the way they can be used together. And then I draw, I draw and I draw again.
