Fashion Week: A/W 11

A little of a delay in making a post concerning February’s London Fashion Week – only two months behind!

We were all overjoyed with the colours, textures and cuts London’s designers have presented for the 2011 winter. Looks like we have a layered and colourful winter to look forward to. The workshop was busy as usual in the lead up – with reams of tartan, segments of jumpers and wooly blankets dyed and printed.

Heikki Salonen: this beautiful video was presented to LFW featuring fabrics printed within the workshop. Heikki keeps the boyish tailoring feminine in the new collection through clever layering of textures and soft colour palates.

topshop unique: 1920’s hollywood glamour was encapsulated within the multi-layered devore ‘miami’ and velvet bridge dresses both printed at London Printworks.

Louise Gray: Louise’s continued interest in contrast and colour overflows into this new collection with disrupted tartan patterns, bubblegum pinks and balloon headpieces. We loved seeing the transformation the print took from print-table to model!

Preen: (shown at New York Fashion Week)

London Printworks Trust’s Printmakers were commissioned by Preen this season to create all-over placement prints onto lambswool jumpers.

The work was a contributing factor to Preen’s final collection and a beautiful example of handprint.

About London Printworks Trust

London Printworks Trust is the centre of excellence for textile print. Our passion has continued for twenty years since establishing ourselves as a charity to encourage professional artists, designers and emerging talent to learn, to share ideas, to produce new work and to fulfil their creative potential. Through our specialist hand printing equipment and workshop facilities we support and nurture creativity in people from the local community of Brixton, and across London. We are developing a new programme of residency places, courses, talks and new open access in response to the changes to funding. We appreciate and thank the support from our Board, Volunteers and Freelancers, without whom we would not have survived the changes to our funding. Continued support from The Leverhulme Trust and Lambeth also helps us to make a difference.
