Joseph Altuzarra’s girl is not one to mess with!
The U.S. Wolmark finalist came out swinging with his first ever ad. Altuzarra enlisted the help of Brit beauty Stella Tennant and Lady Gaga’s dynamic duo Inez & Vinoodh, according to Grazia. The clean images contrast Tennant’s ferocity and distinct 80’s vibe thanks to her slicked back strands, bold eyeliner, and his sharp silhouettes.
His first ads were the result of Kate Spade New York’s branding initiative as part of the CFDA and Vogue Fashion Fund’s project to boost its designers to the next level. The initiative also assisted in bringing the images to as many eyes as possible in the pages of Vogue’s September issue.
The looks are sure to give him a leg up on his competition when he competes for the International Woolmark Prize in 2014.
