Designs of the Day: Agatha Ruiz De La Prada | Sandra Backlund | Laurence Xu | Isabel Toledo

I aim for a world in which there are no cracks for talented designers to slip through.

Laurence Xu Couture
Opulent and intricate Laurence Xu's designs are also breathtaking. 

Isabel Toledo Sketch Costume for After Midnight
Probably the most currently influential designer working in America today who doesn't produce seasonally. It's tough to find pictures of her "most recent" work because she doesn't think of fashion that way, thus the sketch.

Sandra Backlund Fall '13
The greatest living knitwear designer, she's hailed as an artistic hero in her home country of Sweden. 

Agatha Ruiz De La Prada Spring '14
Agatha doesn't get nearly the level of coverage that her groundbreaking work deserves. I searched for two days and couldn't find a complete photographic record of her latest show. Check out the video on her site for the full collection.
