Fashion materiality

21st September 2010

As fashion week turn to design week I think that it is only right and fitting to showcase two fledgling designers who use materials and processes perhaps usually used more for product rather than clothing.

Stephanie Grace Foy's collection during Kingston Universities Body Laboratory created an audible 'gasp' at the sheer beauty and simplicity.

Working with plastics and vinyl she has moulded and vac formed them to represent fluid fabrics. Blended seamlessly or worn as accessories her pieces are beautiful.

Also showing as part of the Body Laboratory was Yasmin Siddiqui. Taking her initial inspiration from a cardboard toy from Muji (inside info!) she has learnt to tool and cut leathers and wood slotting them together as a huge scale puzzle.

Cleverly using the waste leathers from her cut outs she reduced waste and created a beautiful collection that sits somewhere in between art, product, fashion and theatre.

Both these designers will be showcasing their work at Tent London alongside other fashion futurists, well worth a visit.

About


I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
