Georgia Hardinge: Technical construction & sculptural designs

On 29/08/2015 by admin

London-born designer Georgia Hardinge is the face behind the UK fashion line that combines technical constructions with fashion design.The unique brand characterises its collections with sculptural forms, which when contrasted with the feminine designs and styles of the collection, forms a one-of-a-kind, chic aesthetic.

I’d describe the fashion line as aesthetically complex due to its architectural flair. The pieces’ designs are clean and stylish and the technical constructions go alongside these designs to add a unique sculptural edge.

The SS15 collection saw the brand’s signature sculptural aesthetic being complimented by a more vibrant use of colour, seen in the frequent use of the colour lime green and its often mix with the colour blue. While contrastingly, the AW15 collection includes the use of rather monochrome designs being contrasted with the colour red, making the collection more bold in design and emphasising its uniquely patterned sculptural aesthetic.

The designer developed her skills at the Parsons School of Art & Design in Paris, an international experience that has had particular influence of her work and her passion for sculptural designs. Georgia launched her brand in 2010 and has attained continuous success ever since. This includes creating bespoke outfits for the Victoria Secret Fashion Show with sponsorship from Swarovski, and also designing a limited edition Lancôme bottle, which is exclusively sold in Selfridges. The label has also engaged in collaborations with the high-street, with Georgia Hardinge for River Island successfully being sold in 20 stores nationwide and online. The fashion line was also awarded “BFC Contemporary” sponsorship by The British Fashion Council, and has been numerously featured in renowned fashion publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Stylist Magazine. Additionally, the label has been deemed as Grazia and Elle Magazines’ “One to Watch,” and “Instyle’s “Name to Know.”

Ellie Lines: “‪I wanted to create dresses that people could wear and feel amazing in.”‬‬

On 29/08/2015 by admin

The Ellie Lines dress collection is definitely the way to add that ever-essential all-purpose dress to your wardrobe.
The luxury-label brand, which is based in London, was created by the designer with the intent projecting her love of dresses and also to offer women with pieces that are luxurious, stylish and fun.

I caught up with Ellie and she gave a few more interesting details about her eponymous dress line and the inspirations behind it.

“I have been interested and inspired by fashion for as long as I can remember. And after 15 years of styling experience, I wanted to create dresses that people could wear and feel amazing in,” she said.

Ellie Lines4

Ellie’s unique dress line is made up of exclusive, original prints which are all made from 100% silk. I’d describe the line’s pieces as colourful, feminine and stylish and a number of the dresses from the SS15 collection, in my opinion, resemble the style of the 70’s. While the pieces from AW15 collection seem to carry quite an oriental mode, with the presence of kimonos and traditional Chinese hand-fan prints.

Ellie Lines2

Ellie Lines 5Ellie said, “Inspiration comes from my travels, friends and photography. For AW15, the inspiration came from the film ‘Gone with the Wind’ and also my love of fans. The new SS16 collection was inspired by my love of cars.”

“I am constantly driven by visual references, and I use the places and people around me to create new designs for the label,” she added.

When asked which celebrity would be the perfect style icon for her fashion label, the designer stated:
“I would love Florence Welch to wear one of my dresses, it would be amazing to see her in my Julia dress.”

The Ellie Lines dress label is currently putting the final touches on their SS16 collection, which will be the second collection to contrastingly feature a dress made from 100% cotton, entitled “The Gemma Shirt Dress.”

Ellie stated: “‪SS16 collection see’s our widest collection of bespoke prints to date. We are hoping to expand our volume of direct sales through private sales events in our showroom.“‬‬

When questioned about the differences and similarities between prior collections and the up-and-coming SS16 collection, Ellie stated:

“Each of the label’s collections has a new colour palette.”

“Some prints carry though from a past season and get tweaked slightly. Some dress styles appear in each collection, some every other collection.”

“‪The idea is that once a customer finds her style of dress it is nice for that style to re-appear in other prints. I design with different friends in mind rather than having just one muse,” she added.

Ellie Lines3

Finally, despite the Ellie Line’s brand being known and recognised for specifically manufacturing dress pieces, Ellie has stated that she plans on developing her label and expending to other forms of clothing.

“I always wanted it to be a capsule collection of dresses but SS16 sees the introduction of blouses,” she said.

“It felt like a natural progression for the label, it is a great way to wear the prints.”

“Not every day is a dress day,” she added.

On 29/08/2015 by admin

Among the rising and promising up-and-coming fashion labels n the UK is Paper London. Founders Philippa Thackeray and Kelly Townshead launched the brand with its first catwalk show at Mercedes-Benz AW15 Fashion Week in Berlin. The debut show received a vast amount of positive reviews and the London-based label has been building upon this initial success ever since.

Paper L2

I’d describe the line as possessing a stylish, graphic and innovative yet contemporary aesthetic. The line is inspired by modern architecture and art, and the collections also possess a strong use of colour, which makes the pieces all the more gratifying. The brand has gained a reputation for its ability to produce classic styles and easy statement pieces. Paper London is a label that is proud of its British origins and its brand name is indicative of this pride and patriotism. The fashion label presents its pride in its origins by exuding a sense of the capital city and its renowned sense of style in the collections.

Paper L3

Since its launch, the fashion label has achieved a number of commendable successes. This includes being awarded by The British Fashion Council with Contemporary Award consecutively for two seasons and also being featured in prominent fashion publications both nationally and internationally, such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Instyle. The brand has also established a celebrity following with Taylor Swift, Solange Knowles and Jennifer Lopez, being amongst celebrity consumers that have been seen sporting pieces from the label.

Paper L5

The line continues to grow, with the creation of bi-annual collections into Resort, Childrenswear and Accessories. The SS16 collection from the brand sees the brand stick to its key and most admirable styles such as its use of bold colours and architectural designs. The label has also included a line of zodiac sweaters, perfect for those who want to play it safe with UK weather in style!
