Colin Horgan (26)
From Ardfert, Co Kerry, Horgan hit the headlines when Lady Gaga was photographed in June attending the Toronto International Film Festival wearing his filmy black trousers from his RCA graduate collection. Other stars now want some of his vibrant and meticulously handcrafted showpieces, made in synthetic materials like PVC and foil that glow in the dark. His style suits the stage and he is gravitating towards performance as a way of showcasing his work rather than the conventional catwalk. �It means your work is seen by a lot of people so it is a good way to get your stuff out,� says the young designer, who has turned down coveted offers of work from Burberry and J W Anderson to concentrate on being his own boss. Originally drawn to fine art, Horgan studied fashion in LSAD, graduating in 2014, and later took up work with Danish designer Anne Sophie Madsen in Copenhagen, who encouraged him to apply for an MA at the RCA. In November he was one of eight international finalists for the �50,000 H&M Award. Ideally, he would like to have his own brand, making �crazy showpieces� for pop stars alongside a commercial range.
