Best known for his tailoring and dramatic, curving silhouettes, Thomas Tait said his fall collection was something of a watershed. “I’ve reached a point where what I am doing creatively is talking back to me,” said the London-based Canadian designer. “The brand itself is getting its own voice and growing and surpassing me as a person.” Indeed, anyone who’s been following Tait’s trajectory could see that his latest lineup, with its exaggerated angular silhouettes and Bauhaus and Constructivist touches, was his boldest outing yet. “I really let loose,” the designer said.
Tait, who at 24 was the youngest student to complete the Central Saint Martins women’s wear master’s degree program, is evolving in myriad ways. He won the inaugural Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize a few months after showing his first collection at London Fashion Week in 2010, and is now quickly building an international business. Wholesale clients include Louis Boston, Jeffrey, Blake in Chicago, Corso Como in Milan and Seoul independents Boon and Space Mue.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
