Having studied fashion, and being trained as a stylist at Palermo University in Italy and graduating in 2010, Krongold then went on to complete a short course in print at Central Saint Martins. This education in print from one of the fashion world’s most elite institutions provided Krongold with the tools and inspiration to create her irrefutable signature print aesthetic.
The touch of a stylists' hand is obvious throughout Krongolds AW14 collection lookbook, showcasing her undeniable talent for the marriage of colour, print and textiles. Androgyny and freedom of expression appear to be an underlying theme throughout the collection, complemented by loud embellishment and furry textures.
Krongold designs and creates all her own prints, for her own namesake label and several others. Her energetic and spontaneous graphic prints convey the life of youth, lustful and visceral in an onward march through experimentation.
Vanesa Krongold the label provides an insight into her effervescent and unpredictable imagination; her prints are a testament to self-expression.
