William Harrison is a 22 year old designer, living in New York who recently graduated from the Pratt institute. His first collection is fun, playful and is very inspired by the internet. “Sometimes I feel like I only exist on the internet” says William.

We had a little chat about his collection and the world wide web!

What is your collection about? Inspirations?
The prints I created were essentially the mood boards for the collection so everything came down to color and texture: the colored faux fur mimics and anime girl’s bright, unnatural hair color. I wanted to simulate nudity with a flesh tone print on body conscious garments.

You seem very inspired the actual internet aesthetic, what do you like about it?
It’s more real, obtainable, and inclusive than mainstream/high end fashion. But then again, it’s not really about fashion, it’s more of a culmination of music and art scenes. It caters to a younger crowd as well and I’m not interested in stepping into an adult’s shoes entirely just yet.

Celebrity you’d like to see wearing your clothes?
Bjork, of course. And on the other end of the spectrum, I think Courtney Stodden would look really good in some of my clothing.

Favorite Blogs? Favorite tumblr?
Some of my favorite blogs are linked to on my blogspot and a few of my favorite tumblrs are

Style icon?
Right now I’m all about local drag queens.

Your future?
Somewhere down the road I would love to have my own shoe line, but right now I’m just looking for assistant footwear designer positions.

GOODBYE ENGLISH VERSION!

Dear english readers, I’m sorry to announce that I won’t translate my articles in english anymore. I don’t have enough time and I unfortunately can’t afford a translator. One day maybe…but until then, you can probably read the french version with Google translator. Thanks for reading me!
