What Major Designers Looked Like in High School

With back-to-school season upon us, WWD had the brilliant idea to ask some of the biggest fashion and jewellery designers what their style was like in high school. The photos they shared are amazing, to say the least, sprinkled with questionable ’80s hair, shoulder pads, and even a fuzzy boa. Consider this proof that even the most stylish among us were awkward teenagers once too.

Head to WWD to see the full set of photos, and scroll down to see what everyone from Pamela Love to Tommy Hilfiger looked like in high school!
