Having been named the Rising Star of 2011 by Elle and a Designer to Watch by Vogue, it's no wonder our previous One to Watch Kirsty Ward is a designer who's become well accustomed to press attention. Having just exhibited her S/S13 collection in our Paris showrooms, it's something that's sure to continue. Most recently, it's been Glass magazine, Crack magazine and Vogue Italia that she's caught the eye of.
In 'A moment with Kirsty Ward', Glass talked to the Central Saint Martin's graduate about her inspirations, VFS and the future. “Inspiration can come from anywhere,” she says during the interview. “I especially love the elderly... I also watch a lot of sci-fi and that always creeps in.”
Crack magazine have also recently featured her work. One of Ward's AW12 necklaces has appeared in an editorial of the monthly art and music magazine's latest issue and perfectly presents the structured aesthetic the designer has become known for.
If that wasn't enough, Vogue Italia have also featured Ward's AW12 collection in their talent section. With a biography and a display of her powerfully innovative and embellished designs, it's safe to say Kirsty Ward is certainly making a name for herself.
