NEW YORK — Born and trained in Britain, having worked in Paris and now living in Milan, where else could Victoria Grantham look for inspiration for her first women’s collection than good old American sportswear?
After focusing nearly her entire career on dressing men, the 34-year-old designer is targeting the women’s market for fall with a collection that infuses elements of several of her international work experiences. Rather than reinventing the wheel, as some men’s designers have in past efforts to cross the gender barrier, Grantham said her women’s designs follow along the same methods and techniques she employs in the two-year-old VGrantham men’s collection, based in Milan.
