Fashion’s Newest Star

By Jo Phillips

One in a lifetime comes a talent so precocious, so divine, so eloquent, one that stands out as a true rebel, a true genius and one that changes the creative world forever. The latest to enter this London-based arena is named Raymond Novak. A fusion of broken London and flirtatious Paris steeped in a world of Polari; an anarchist of fashion in the truest sense of the word.  Novak is an antidote to much of the artifice of the modern runway, and will forever change how we regard this art form which is clothing in its most exclusive language.
