Highlights from LFW 2012

Again London has put on a spectacular show for London Fashion Week sourced from around the world. I have picked a few personal favouriets from the mix of catwalk shows and the exhibition that really highlight British fashion brilliance.

Elliot Rentz is a young teenage designer who recently relocated to London from Brighton. His creative skills are solely self taught not having studied fashion design at university. I find his designs striking and rather imposing, he uses the terms “flirting with death” as a strong summary for his current work. All of Ellitos deisgns are created from a variety of mixed media.

Holly Fulton in my eyes is one of the leading ladies in textiles and print in fashion.  Her originas are based in Edinburgh where she studied at the Edinburgh College of Art and the Royal College of Art. This collection involved a great mix of  hot accessories and graphic prints of luxurious materials.This is her second year at the show and hopefully we will see plenty more creations from Holly to come.

Claire Barrow was a little gem I discovered. Born in Stock-on-Tees, studied at University of Westminister and at the Cleveland College of Art in Middlesbrough. I find her deisgns appeal to a wide audience, from the young rebellious teenager to the twenties city rocker. Her pieces have a very strong  D.I.Y feel to them with organic hand drawn prints on mixed media fabrics.

Atalanta Weller is a modern uniques shoe designer based in london. She is born in Gloucestershire and studied Cordwainers at London College of Fashion in London. The moment I saw these I fell in love with them, I do however have a very soft spot for shoes. Her client would ultimately be a very strong independant women. These bold, graphic shoes are not for the faint hearted.

About Emma Wright

I am studying Fashion and Textile design at Ravensbourne, cultivating my desire for drawing, painting and designing. My work is inspired by my imagination as well as by reality, responding to my emotions through visual recordings. These hand drawn illustrations are then warped to compose a more contemporary feel. To date I have worked with a variety of companies from Hussein Chalayan, Ted Baker, Matthew Williamson and Sass and Bide in Australia. Last summer I decided to create my own label where I crafted my textile designs into scarves, printing and manufacturing them in England.
