fashion scouts need woggles…

So London Fashion week is in full swing -and im opting out with my dog in the coutnryside OOPS! never mind as I am still nerding up online, away from having to look good in this rain.

As we are more interested in emerging talent here, first bit of coverage comes from Vauxhall Fashion Scout -guys who focus on showing new designers and have, with the past seven seasons, shown designers including Peter Pilotto, Felder Felder, Spijkers en Spijkers, William Tempest, Avsh Alom Gur, Cooperative Designs & Cupboard favorites Theatre de la Mode!

Schedule’s on all week for shows, but the ‘ONE TO WATCH’ -the shows of emerging young designers, happened on Friday….

David Longshaw

CSM and RCA graduate David Longshaw show = soft coloured illustrations + block colours + lovely blue + shoulders!

Eudon Choi

Utility utility plus floaty chiffon from Eudon Choi, who mixes up masculine tailoring counter balanced by ultra girly dresses.

ASKH

A Danish duo! Rah, I cant get a good look at this but i’ve heard its a good one! Going to try and track this show down for you later…

Florencia Kozuch

Argentinian Londoner Florencia Kozuch had a wicked graduate collection from CSM last year and is my favorite now with her crazy knits, lots of sexy black (hurah) and amazing textures – my personal one to watch…

Fold up. part two.

Amazing ++++++++

mashallah design + Linda Kostowski, the_tshirt_issue

This is actually an old project from 2008 between Mashallah Design and Linda Kostowski, but it looks freeeeessssh! The Berlin based designers scanned human bodies, fed it into the computer to create 3d polygons, then turned that into 2d files that are then lazer cut.

And this is a very small peer at an architecture concept that involves pattern cutting/fabric  ‘moulds’ , which create concrete structures unique to the process>>>>

Project by Mark West

These columns were designed and built by Prof. Mark West and students, moulded from spandex!! (Thanks to Center for Architectural Structures and Technology (CAST).).

So much to think about….

fold up Fred

Has anyone noticed the fold-up pop-up shine obsession about now?? 

I have a feeling that much of it could be down to Fred Butler -love her! Graduating from Brighton in 2003 she makes props and pieces for editorial, fahsion and accessories -very inspiring work, once you know it you’ll always recognise. Inspiring….

If anyone has any work that they’ve completed this year or are producing for future seasons SEND A BIT IN and we’ll start a little collection of ideas on the blog. New year new sights!

GOLD SPECS!

WOAH! 

its like, a desert man with shiney glasses, on the moon and fergies having a lay down in the jungle, and then there’s a moon elephant a space ship and a shiney prism, and then the scary man is not in it and you think, well where is he? and then it turns out hes singing at the SUN!

what more could anyone want? i love music videos

Sandra Backlund hails from Stockholm, where she makes beautiful, sculptural knitwear, using small units to build up bigger designs.

She’s also a big promoter of handcraft, which is interesting for such a contemporary aesthetic :::::: as SB says>

“The handimade process and the handmade feeling is … very significant. I am interested in almost every traditional handicraft method. It is the real thing and everything the modern fashion industry is not. ”
