vejas-ss17-1

Canadian designer Vejas Kruszewski is only 19 years old, but he's managed to neatly catapult himself into #goals status by showing collections at both New York and Paris's fashion weeks. What's more, he's entirely self taught and just won €150,000 and a year's mentorship under the LVMH prize.

For his envy-inducing debut in Paris, Vejas scoured the internet for some archival dressmaking patterns, then sliced women's and men's pieces into unusual, warped silhouettes. Sick.

Workwear vibes aplenty, too. Vejas' unusual flaps were secured with heavy-duty buttons, while he also presented his take on that most Canadian of outfits — the double denim Canadian tux. And all I ever did when I was 19 was listen to metal and eat baked beans FFS.
