Draw in Light: The connection

Back in 2008, I interviewed new University of Brighton graduate Harriet Barford for London Printworks’ internship scheme. Her print samples were delicate, linear and beautifully executed. We instantly snapped her up.

After working incredibly hard across the entire organisation for four months; assisting with courses, helping to facilitate the workshop and assist with print production for clients such as Paul Smith, Harriet finished with a free membership and print time for all her hard work.

Over the subsequent years we have seen Harriet develop as a fashion print designer, she has worked tirelessly with her business partner Polly to create a fashion line Draw in Light, completely made up of fluid and interesting print designs. The fashion-forward department store, Libertys, seem to agree too, having selected them from one of their famous Best of British Open Call days and stocking Draw in Light since February 2010.

Draw in Light are going from strength to strength, having just shown at London Fashion Week A/W 11. For their space, Fallon created a beautiful short film, capturing the painterly printing technique executed onto fabric within our very own London Printworks workshop.
