Growing up Getty provided an interesting portal into the world of Art, Fashion and Fantasy for designer August Getty. By the age of five, August had created his very own world of whimsy, storytelling, dance and drawing, he also had the perfect muse to direct: his sister, Natalia.
After years in the making, August Getty is pleased to announce his debut designer collection for Spring/Summer 2015 and the opening of his Los Angeles studio, aptly named August Getty Atelier.
Getty’s childhood is filled with memories of his mother (Ariadne Getty, daughter of Sir Paul Getty, KBE - a.k.a. John Paul Getty II) opening larger than life boxes from the greatest couturiers of her time.
August calls upon memories of wildly delightful European Heiresses, Statues and his family’s botanical gardens. He would sit for hours and draw Hydrangeas, Peonies and Wisteria -- flowers that abundantly appear throughout this season’s collection. Glamour, power and prestige push the envelope of Getty’s designs that include drop dead, head turning dresses and gowns.
