New York-based designer Mathieu Mirano may be only 22, but he has already been tapped as one of America’s young designers to watch. With designs worn by the likes of Lady Gaga and Nicole Richie and features in Elle US and WWD, the industry has been paying attention to this cutting edge creative. Recently, we got a chance to ask Mirano about his inspirations, what it was like working with Lady Gaga and living in the Big Apple.
“Our industry is multidimensional, and that is very exciting for me to be a part of. I also love women and want to make them happy. The Mathieu Mirano woman is very powerful, confident, and secure, and I am inspired by her every day.”

And then I hear ‘Beautiful, Gaga! Yes! Yes! Look at that girl!’ And I’m reminded that my sense of self within the world.”
