As the weather hots up, so does the competition as July also marks the start of New Designers at the Business Design Center in Islington. Showcasing the brightest and best this year’s graduates have to offer, we are delighted to say that we have not just one, but two of our former interns showing at this years show!
”My final major project, Oh Kingdom Come In The Absence of Evil, is a collection based on the idyllic dream-esque, glossed over perception of the American dream. Inspired by the beauty of run down motels and shop fronts, places once loved for the part they played in the people’s stories that passed through them. Artists such as David Hockney and Edward Hopper also provide influence. All of the pieces have defining tactile, and visual, details which calls for the attention of the viewer.”
”To ensure a bright future in British manufacturing it is imperative that we connect the designer with the consumer. Stewart’s designs are ethically conscious, with a commitment to local produce that creates a new appreciation for authentic British craftsmanship enabling Lauren Louise Embroidery to create bespoke denim jackets for individual clientele.”
As you can see they have both gone on to produce tremendous work. Follow the links to find our more about them. Well done ladies!
