Fashion East have announced their SS15 designer roll call, including previous Fashion Scout One To Watch Helen Lawrence (pictured).
This is Lawrence’s second season with the initiative, setting her hot on the heels of Fashion East alumni Henry Holland, Roksanda Ilincic and Katie Eary.
Lawrence showed a cool colour palette of soft grey, mint and monochrome for AW14, knits made modern with bare midriffs, skirts more seductive with thigh high splits. Scribble stitch embroidery is a Lawrence signature, complementing PVC textures and undulating hemlines. This collection was more sedate that SS14, which featured lime knits and powder pink PVC. It’s clear Lawrence has a talent for mixing materials in her sculptural designs.
Lawrence graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2012, after completing a textile degree at Chelsea College of Art & Design. She then worked with classmate Craig Green on his men’s knitwear, also spending time at Mark Fast and Alexander McQueen. With V magazine, i-D, Vogue and Style.com keeping track of the Tyneside native, Lawrence’s fresh approach to textiles is set to cement her status as a fashion innovator.
