NY Fashion Designer New Collection Evokes A Midnight Summer's Dream
Fashion designer Michael Porter-Midnight Summer's Dream Collection showcases his trademark dark and edgy women's couture.
Due to be published in several national and international fashion magazines this summer, "Midnight Summer's Dream" features four new designs: "Eyes Wide Shut," "Apocalypse,"
All four reflect Porter's avant-garde "sex in the city" style and the juxtaposition of gorgeous and Goth. With "Eyes Wide Shut" and "Ecstasy," he's introduced an element of titillation. The "risqué" nature of the fashion layout, Porter admitted, "will spark a lot of interest" in his designs and "maybe even generate a little controversy."
For the "Apocalypse"
Porter's signature pieces often feature midnight black lace and shimmering sequined silk, and typically show off a lot of skin sheathed in chains.
"I've garnered a lot of attention with my chain pieces," Porter said, most notably his chain thong and bra combo.
Porter mixes urban, goth and couture to explore the sensual and provocative side of fashion. "That's what my clients want," he explained. "And, it's where my taste takes me."
His designs have previously been spotlighted in several avant-garde fashion publications, including: Elegant, a fashion, beauty, editorial and conceptual art magazine, Le fil d'Or a Paris Fashion magazine, BB and Sheeba Magazine, the print publication for "independent fashion artists."
Porter's Enerve Fashion has cut a wide swath in the New York fashion scene and captured the imagination of big-name celebrities in television, film and music. He is often invited to A-list social affairs, the most recent being a prestigious Planned Parenthood fund-raiser and a gala honoring Robert De Niro on the night he received the Chaplin award for artistic achievement.
He has had the good fortune to have such high-profile models such as former "America's Next Top Model" Shei Pan and former Project Runway models Jordan Hathaway and Nyamuoch Girwath to collaborate with on several editorial shoots. conceptual art magazine, and Alpha Fashion, the print publication for independent fashion artists. He has worked with GUM Studios in previous photo shoots showcasing his Hip-Hop line.
