This month our Covent Garden boutique is playing host to some fresh new fashion talent straight out of Graduate Fashion Week. We’ve chosen some of our favourite collections from recent graduates to show off in our windows. They team up well with our own current collections, too!
The first designer to grace our windows is the talented Clare Harman:
Clare is fresh out of the Arts University College Bournemouth from the Fashion Studies BA course, where she explored different textile techniques. Clare’s final collection was inspired by considering the relationship between craft and technology.
“In a world dominated by the need to have the latest advances in technology and where time-consuming craft is being devalued I produced a metaphorical commentary on this,” she explains. “The big bold triangular prints represent technology, contrasting with soft smokey sensitive effects representing craft.”
Some of the techniques included dip dying, coating wool and using puff binder for a raised texture as you can see on her pyramid top:
Clare’s work sits perfectly with our Halcyon Skies and Pyramid ranges, thanks to her cloudy dip dyed fabric and use of triangles throughout the collection. Bravo Clare, I’ll take one of the over-sized wool pyramid patterned coats!
To contact Clare, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07929 331 445.
We’ll be showcasing more Graduate Fashion Week designers in the coming weeks, so keep an eye on our windows!
