Yeagob was founded in 2014 by Santiago Rico, when he was studying a Degree in Fashion in Alicante, Spain. ‘Yeagob’, which means ‘Santiago’ in Hebrew, was chosen as the name for his brand instead of his very own name – Going back to the roots of his name gave him the idea of going to the origins of male tailoring as well, which has been the focus of his brand ever since.
Once he finished his studies in fashion, he worked with several clothing brands and, after a year, recovered his own project, Yeagob, creating his two first collections ‘Eutimia’ and ‘Distimia’, inspired by psychological disorders – the topic around which all his collections stem. He has now moved to Barcelona where he is focused on his third collection, ‘Narcissus’.
His clothes are hand-made, always using the best fabrics and taking great care of every detail. Yeagob can be described as classic male tailoring with a modern twist. Adjectives such as sobriety, elegance, minimalism and cleanliness define this brand.
Antonia Nae is a graduate fashion designer, who won the award for ‘Lipsy the Best Red Carpet Dress’ at Graduate Fashion Week 2016 in London, and became one of the best five graduates from UK.
Since then, she collaborated with many stylists and designers, and participated in different shows, such as British Fashion Volume II and The Clothes Show. Also, she is going to present in February her collection with Fashions Finest and Oxford Fashion Studio during London Fashion Week 2017.
During her studies, she did her work experience at Allison Rodger and Jenny Packham, where she worked in teams for creating beautiful designs for different celebrities, including Oprah and the Duchess of Cambridge. After winning the award in 2016, Lipsy offered her an internship in their Design team.
The collection she is going to present at Fashions Finest is inspired by the texture and the beauty of the wild nature from Danube Delta. It is a Ready-to-Wear collection with Avant-Garde accents. The outfits are all black with fabric manipulation details to show the texture of the nature, sparkly lace, beaded fabrics and leather. All the looks are different, but they relate to each other, showing her love, passion and dedication for fashion design and craftsmanship.
