Born in Buffalo and Trained in London, Edwin Mohney Sources the Fabric for His Radical Ball Gowns at Kmart

Last night, students of London’s Central Saint Martins showed their graduate collection on the university runway, which has played host to some of the industry’s most creative minds. (The list of alumnae reads like a Who’s Who of British fashion: John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Phoebe Philo, to name a few.) Last year, American designer Edwin Mohney was among those who presented at CSM. His highly imaginative designs ended up being something of a viral sensation—made from shrunken rubber Donald Trump masks, the shoes in particular were a runaway hit. Though his blowup paddling-pool headpieces were easily a close second.
