It’s no surprise that Argentinian designer Maia Bergman‘s final collection, before graduating from Central St. Martin’s School of Design, put her in the running for the 2013 H&M Design Award. Maia brilliantly embellishes sheer and simple silhouettes with tiny and colorful plastic beads, while drawing inspiration from the repetitive patterns of bacteria growth and the downtown punk and pop sensibility of designer Stephen Sprouse. We’re honestly blown away by the textures and details and are just dying to see more from this emerging designer!
