Toton
Raised by his seamstress single mother, it was inevitable that Toton Januar developed his passion for design at a young age. Ironically, the talented independent designer's mother did not approve of his enthusiasm for the arts and fashion. After a stint in engineering and media broadcasting, he finally enrolled in Parson's New School of Design in New York to study fashion. Thankfully too! It would have been a lamentable loss to the fashion world had he not. Toton's style is playful, artsy, lyrical and elegant. He takes time-honoured methods like embroidery to new heights by breathing new styles into them. The results are impeccably classy and wearable pieces any woman would love to bits.
