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.
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!

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.
