JEAN-PIERRE BRAGANZA Spring/Summer 2012 October 17, 2011
The shOws, a fashion event outside of Toronto's Fashion Week was the brain child of Paola Fullerton Inc. Focusing on Canadian designers that live and work outside of Canada, the shOws delivered on not only shows but on education (WGSN Global Trend Report and Coco Rocha Letters to Haiti). The line up included some very well known and not so well know expats.
Jean-Pierre Braganza, born in London and raised in Canada he now resides back in London. He graduated from Central Saint Martins and prior to launching his own line, he worked for Roland Mouret - ahh that is why we are drawn to his designs.
His pieces for Spring/Summer 2012 included structured blazers over top of billowy dresses. The structured blazer is the piece that Jean-Pierre is known for.
