but on working there for many years its logical to conclude that they share similar philosophies in terms of cut, fit and detailing.
the two possibilities that exist is
1. a designer who worked many years for another designer, might decide to establish them self by doing something radically different from one their former employer is known for (see Antonio Berardi and John Galliano)
2. The designer might be committed to the philosophy and as such continue in the same vein of thier former employer (see Junya Watanabe and Rei Kawakubo )
I don't think either direction is bad and I don't think one should consider deepti as derivative in the traditional/ pejorative sense. I see it more as an extension of the work started at CCP, especially now Carol has not put out a collection in 6 years.....
