What was that we were saying about a heatwave when we last wrote? Monsoon (and not the high street shop) was the order of most days during our recent visit to London, and emptying rainwater from one’s shoes gets irksome after a while – as well as necessitating new foot frockery!
The New Designers exhibition in Islington, which showcased some exceptional talent from art schools acoss the UK, was the main reason for our visit as our own recently graduated Kirstin was showing her designs. We were especially delighted to see the Glasgow School of Art’s Paul Rodin scoop the new designer of the year award for his truly inspirational printed textiles.
Having now returned to the frock face, we will be bringing you some fab new and not-so-new fashion to take you effortlessly through heatwaves, monsoons and every other weather. Jumpers and coats have been selling steadily alongside our summery frockery as this unpredictable climate of ours demands we be prepared for all seasons regardless of what the calendar tells us.
Finally, we should mention that a local holiday on Monday 27th July means that all weekend orders will be dispatched on Tuesday 28th.
Many congratulations to our part time model and assistant Kirstin on her graduation from Glasgow School of Art with a BA(Hons) in Design Textiles and on a fabulous degree show which has already gained her a commission. Well done!
An array of unique and exciting designs from 3rd year undergraduate textiles students (including The Frockery’s very own Kirstin) will once again be showcased at this prestigious annual fashion event! For more information, visit the GSA Fashion Show’s MySpace.
