Fashion Week darling Christopher Esber remains committed to achieving a personal best with his designs, writes Georgina Safe.
It is the week after Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia and you might think Christopher Esber would be taking time out to enjoy the praise following his standout show.Esber was described variously as ”the one true breakthrough talent”, ”the official one to watch” and the designer who ”proved his moment had come” following his sleek presentation inspired by karate, fly-fishing and fencing during an otherwise mostly lacklustre week.No less than the respected fashion critic Tim Blanks (of style.com) described the ”newly anointed” designer’s collection to be a ”perfect paradox … complete control collapsing into sensual disarray”.
”I felt a bit disconnected from the collection,” the designer says. ”I was getting all this applause and feedback immediately backstage and I was just a bit numb to all the comments. Even looking back now at the photos, I still feel very distant and it doesn’t feel like it was from me.’
