Famed Fashion Designer Malan Breton has been nominated for Global Fashion Award in the category of Outstanding Fashion Collaboration for his work on NBC's number one rated game show "Minute to Win It". This is an awesome fete for young designer Breton with the other nominees being Karl Lagerfeld and Matthew Williamson. Breton’s other accolades include consulting with Project Runway, Australia's Next Top Model, The Today Show, Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt, Princeton University, & the WGSN Global Fashion Awards.
Breton Fall 2011 collection was showcased a few months ago in New York Fashion Week. This collection was magnificent. It was Japanese inspired with geisha dancing. There were these exquisite white kimonos. Breton’s use of simple lines and rich fabrics that are a staple of Japanese kimonos throughout his collection. The highlight of the show was his ruby reds, Breton blues, and selenite white—that was consistently fused with geisha-style low-back neckline that exposes the lovely napes of necks and shoulders in the feminine silhouette. This shows very innocent sex appeal without being too risqué.
His future projects include being the subject of a six part series on Bravo TV titled "The Malan Show" "A six part series following the process of making it in America as an independent designer!"
Breton’s humanitarian efforts included donating much of his time to amfAR, Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS, and Care and Share India. Malan also has a strong background in ballet which he juxtaposes in his signature fashion shows by using dancers.
Malan Breton has come a long way in six years. His creativeness is definitely special and unique since he is self taught and never attended fashion school. The sky is the limit for this rising fashion designer. Stay Tuned, the best is yet to come!
