London College of Fashion MA_STERS
The MA show at the London College of Fashion is the perfect place to spot all the potential next big things in British fashion. I am in absolute awe of the collection put together by Sarah Williams. Her bags are simply outstanding, this is what she has to say about her collection,
"Historically exceptional craftsmanship was the norm now it is the exception."
The collection is designed to challenge this statement by utilising regional historical craftsmanship and metamorphosising the traditional in order to produce a collection of original fashion artefacts.
Throughout the whole design and production process three method of change were applied to the materials used; metamorphosis, presence and anthropomorphism. This results in fashion artefacts which relate both to historical traditions but can be used in a modern day context.
Her collection is putting a real modern architectural edge on the classic handbags of the 30's and 40's. Check out her website here.
Another designer I will definitely be keeping my eye on is Jody Parchment, her take on shoes is in keeping with the sheer extravagance of the late Alexander McQueen while still having some pieces which will be consumer friendly.♥
