Beginning of label was 2008 and September 2008, marked as an International label “THE NEXT EPISODE” a label which has developed in a short span of time a small yet a strong niche of loyal customers. THE NEXT EPISODE is not just a designer label per say rather it’s a fashion movement. Far away from the congested world with a many me too designers. THE NEXT EPISODE brings freshness, a new appeal and approaches with a new orientation to designing: that good designs are not for everyone, they are not only for the rich, not only who belongs to a certain social class but it’s for EVERY true lover and enthusiast of design who loves new and beautiful creations, who appreciates art, for whom a garment is not just a fashion statement but who sees his or her self expression through it. We at THE NEXT EPISODE do not make garments but we create art in its purest form, so innocent that it does not bound by terms such as signature lines because for us art is boundless, it has no limitations, it is self expansive, it touches everyone sometime or the other especially when one gets introspective and introverted. THE NEXT EPISODE aims to fulfill that basic design need of an individual which has always been there. The desire of a human to be free, to be boundless, to connect to its true nature, to be in love with one’s own self. We are just the means to help one attain it through our designs and ideology. This fraternity, this movement, this journey which we feel is guided by the Spirit of the Angelic Horse which is not only engaging and interesting but with time would reveal its new creations, its new joys, take one into within to explore, realize and cherish the yet unexplored aspects of one’s own self.
It is currently available at The S*uce Stores, Roxx Couture in UAE, Dar Al Salhiya, Kuwait and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In the coming months it shall be available in the Italian and Ukrainian market.
