Best New Menswear Designers in America project
Jan '08
GQ announced the establishment of its Best New Menswear Designers in America project, an annual initiative started in collaboration with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).

The competitive effort will recognize the rising stars of American men's fashion design. The magazine selected six designers as finalists in the inaugural competition, and each will be featured in its February 2008 issue.

A panel of industry experts chaired by GQ editor-in-chief Jim Nelson, GQ creative director Jim Moore, and the CFDA will choose the winner.

"We feel it's an exciting and pivotal time for men's fashion in America, with new and very promising designers emerging every season," said Jim Nelson, GQ editor-in-chief.

"GQ is committed to doing anything we can to support them. We hope this initiative helps put a spotlight on the best and the brightest."

The six finalists selected by GQ are Engineered Garments (Daiki Suzuki and Angelo Urrutia, designers), Gilded Age (Stefan Miljanic, designer), Obedient Sons (Swaim Hutson and Christina Hutson, designers), Rag & Bone (David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, designers), Spurr (Simon Spurr, designer), and Steven Alan (Steven Alan, designer).

On January 30, 2008, the designers will each present a selection of looks from their fall 2008 collections at a special presentation and celebration in New York City.

"Menswear created by American designers is redefining the way men dress," commented Steven Kolb, CFDA Executive Director.
