“Reid” About GQ’s Best New Designer
Do you recall GQ‘s best new designer spread in their March issue? If not, you can browse the images on MyFDB. For the third year in a row, GQ has teamed up with Levi’s and Bloomingdale’s to honor some of the brightest talents in the fashion industry as part of the Best New Menswear Designers in America project.
Six designers were selected by the editors of GQ to compete for a $50,000 cash prize and the opportunity to create a limited edition collection for Levi’s. On February 12, designer Billy Reid was chosen as the winner and is currently working on his line, which will debut at several Bloomingdale’s locations this fall.
This process has been documented in several online videos featuring each of the designers. Watch Billy Reid’s video below where he takes us through his NYC Bond St. shop.
