Fashion Designer Spotlight: Corban Harper
I met Corban Harper at Project Red Dress 2012. He had created a beautiful dress in dark burgundy fabric that romanced the crowd with every step. His beautiful gown earned him the title of winner of Project Red Dress and awarded him a scholarship. Corban explained later in an interview that he has very little background in fashion. What sparked his passion was actually a photography project during his sophomore year in high school. While researching for the project he found an Irving Penn photo of a Dior Couture gown that captivated him and pushed him into the fashion world.
Having recently graduated, Corban is working hard to build his presence in the fashion world. He is currently working on Metropolitan Fashion Week, including the night that his collection will be featured (March 31st). He also mentioned to me on the sly that there are several other projects he is working on that he cannot mention…yet!
In the future he is hoping to move to New York City, the epicenter of fashion, to launch his career.
See Corban Harper at Metropolitan Fashion Week!
Fashionably yours, Maggie Brookes
