It all started from the ever innovative, talented whiz-kid Christopher Kane. He is widely believed to be the man who single-handedly saved London fashion week, achieved significant profits in his first year at Versace, and created for us this amazingly weird, yet beautiful, galaxy trend. His Autumn collection of 2010, caused him to become a household name. With a huge number of searches every month on Google, this trend has certainly made a strong mark on our culture. He created digitally printed chiffon dresses, tees and tops – basically everything possible covered with galaxy print, to stunning effect.
This high-end, yet relatively new and young brand found its way to the blogger turned designer, James Lillis’ radar, who has created numerous designs based on Kane’s galaxy prints under the name ‘Black Milk’. It has become a cult phenomenon, with his skin-tight and high quality legwear adorned with galaxy prints. Since, various online stores, and now the British High Street, have paid homage to the cosmic patterns paved by others. They have captured the imagination of both producer and consumer because of their affinity with nature, the association with futurism and exploration, as well as a passion for the universe outside of our own planet.
With a following of high-profile bloggers and lots of loyal fans, galaxy prints have became the hot topic of the moment in young people’s conversations, both on social media networks and face to face. So go get yourself some of these mysterious, mystical prints in your wardrobe, and you will be well on the way to becoming a fashionista on this planet and any other!
