Vauxhall Fashion Scout former Merit Award winner Georgia Hardinge has created her first ever Resort Collection. Exquisitely cut with Georgia's trademark silhouettes and patterning, Georgia felt that creating a resort collection was the next step in order to challenge herself.
Editor Cass Gowing caught up with Georgia to chat about the new development for the designer.
Georgia - talk us through your first ever Resort collection:
As you can see the collection has a light feel. I made the print by placing paper over melted, coloured wax crayons and then scratching it off the paper once dry to create an image that I then manipulated. The shapes within the collection are rounded and constructed with minimal seams to produce bold silhouettes.
The fabric that I used in some of the pieces is interesting; particularly a new technology fabric which is layered between chiffon and cotton (this is the grid fabric you see in the images and is sometimes used under carpets to stop them from slipping). I was drawn to this particular fabric because of its geometric form.
Such a detailed geometric form and patterning is definitely something that you are renowned for. What are you working on at the moment?
