New Fashion Talent for GFW!

Sunday, 2 June 2013

A few months ago, I interviewed up and coming fashion graduates Charlotte Matthews, Austin Louis Perry and Elizabeth Arthur about their collections. This week, they're showing at GFW and my gorgeous Pippa Says is going to see their show! But for now, here's an update on their collections and how they're getting along: and what a long way they've come in just a few months!!

Firstly, this gorgeous print design ensemble is by Charlotte who specializes in print design throughout her collection. She experiments with colours and shapes to create a bold look, in tune with the SS13 neon and geometric trends. Easy to wear and accessorize, this bold urban look will have you melting in your seat at GFW!

Austin has been making waves with his experimental approach to fashion and this look is nothing but another triumph! A pioneer of a tricky fabric- (fur!), Austin makes this outlandish look glamorous with a revealing midi skirt and bold animal prints. Very Kelli McGuinness-esque this look is surely one to break the mould at GFW: hang onto your hats!
 Austin's work has even been spotted by famous fashion writer Hilary Alexander, who currently writes for the Telegraph!

You go, Austin!

Finally, but by no means least- Lizzie Arthur has captured the art of pleating in her new farmwear-inspired collection featuring pink china and azulejo-type prints (as widely seen on the high street for SS13). These gorgeous wide-leg dungarees are the perfect thing for any current summer wardrobe and there'll be fighting over these once GFW is over! You'll have to make me a pair, Lizzie! 

Lizzie's also been making waves with her work, as featured on the London Evening Standard's fashion section (Lizzie's work, far left):

This is such fantastic work and I wish you all the best for GFW! Keep an eye on Pippa's twitter for live updates throughout their show- good luck guys!
