EXPERIMENTAL and free-range, the designers on the Fashion East line-up are known for their boundary-busting creations. The Fashion East alumni reads like a who’s who of London Fashion week talent; Meadham Kirchhoff, Roksanda Ilincic and Jonathan Saunders have all been cooked up in the design incubator that is Fashion East by its founder Lulu Kennedy. And so, to spring/summer 2015, and the trio of designers who are next up to showcase their collections.
Helen Lawrence: Textiles designer Helen Lawrence hit a home run with her taped and stitched pastel jumpers last season, and her collection this time around was a neat follow on. For spring she played with latex layers on jackets and capes, her signature giant stitching still evident, meshing together hems on tops giving the clothes a deconstructed DIY appeal.
Louise Alsop: Tailoring seen through a Nineties prism was the vibe here, even the belly chain made a comeback. Long skater shorts and halter neck dresses got a rework with skull prints and fishnet fabrics. Matted dreads and kohl black eyes completed the trip back in time.
Ed Marler: All hail the reign of the show off, Ed Marler closed the Fashion East show with an army of vampires; opulent in bandana crowns, sunglasses dripping in jewels and crucifix festooned Victoriana dresses, with thigh-high splits and lace-trimmed trains – this was the highlight.
