Canadian designer Sid Neigum has been working tirelessly over the past couple years to make a name for himself in the international fashion industry. The twenty-two year-old has attended the infamous Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, showed at Vancouver, Edmonton and Toronto Fashion Weeks, and won emerging designer awards – that’s a long way from his start in Alberta.
Though my praise doesn’t account for much, I am willing to expend my effort convincing you that Neigum is the real deal. After seeing his Fall/Winter ’11 collection at LG Fashion Week, I fell in love. Whether that’s just because I personally love everything black, broody, and paired with underground electro music is obsolete – it was love. The dark aesthetic of his work is absolutely captivating. There were a handful of other designers who showcased all-black collections, but despite popular belief, it’s not an easy task. Not to say that others failed, but Neigum’s collection was the best, by far. Even Flare magazine has said that Neigum has “left other presenters in the proverbial fashion dust.”
Aside from the obvious skill the designer possesses, Neigum seems to have an “X factor” that will (hopefully) ensure his success. There’s something between drive, talent, and personality that is innate in some people. You can’t work for it, you can’t fake it, you can’t buy it, it’s just there. It’s as if he’s wired differently, with a brain that is both bold and clandestine. He designs by process, but it comes off as effortless. He’s modest, but he must know how far above-par he’s sitting. He’s humourous, but in a way that you’re not sure he’s joking. So, what’s the best way to find out? Ask him. Credits: Stealing Some Time from Designer Sid Neigum | PremierLife.ca
