Topic: Fashion Icons
Andrew Spade: My favorite fashion icon would be either Ray Pekubo or Junior Watenabe. I usually look to the Japanese for inspiration in design; how they mix traditional with the avant grade. And I don’t usually wear it, but conceptually and from a design standpoint, IsiMiaki I think is incredibly talented. And there are others. There are smaller designers, and there are a lot in America as well as Europe. But those are the people who I always get excited about when I read their ideas.
