Fashion Space Gallery at London College of Fashion has launched its exhibition New Fashion: Interventions in Materials and Techniques.
The exhibition is the first in a three-part series which showcases the “brightest young fashion talent across fashion design, fashion illustration and fashion photography”.
In this London fashion event, UK’s emerging designers including Derek Lawlor, Fyodor Golan, Felicity Brown, Chi Chi Luo and more are highlighted.
“New Fashion brings together designers whose inspired approach to design and unique contributions to the field of fashion make their work exciting and new,” says the Fashion Space Gallery.
“What binds this group together is their imperative attention to detail, craftsmanship and execution that define fashionable dress at its highest level, yet demonstrates radically innovative approaches to materials and construction.”
Chi Chi Luo (see above design) is a recent graduate from London College of Fashion. He has been called “One to Watch” by Vogue.com and Vogue Italia. Also, he was shortlisted for the “Most creative student collection” at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards 2011.
Another exhibiting designer is Úna Burke, a London College of Fashion MA Fashion Artefact graduate. Her leather designs have received accolades from Italian Vogue, Wallpaper and the Guardian and awards including the Crafts Council of Ireland Future Maker Student Award.
