TRIBUTE TO CRAFT FASHION
Tribute to craft fashion: “this year, students were keen to pay tribute to craft fashion. “Art is no longer the enemy of the industry, both sectors have become inseparable. Thus, everything is done to innovate, enhance techniques, marry tradition and creation.” –
François Bousquet, director of LaSalle College’s International School of Fashion, Arts and Design.
Parachute – Nicola Pelly “The students have been working closely for nearly 18 months with Nicola Pelly to create a collection based on the philosophy and approach of the Parachute design. Inspired by Japanese culture as well as the 1980s with woman liberty and androgyny, the Parachute approach is intellectual whilst focusing on world trends. This enriching academic experience has helped the students understand how this designer works, and learn first-hand about the realities of the market they will soon enter”.
