Designer Spotlight: Leutton Postle
Former Merit Award winner Leutton Postle returns to Vauxhall Fashion Week for AW12/13, cementing themselves as a key designer for LFW.
Knitwear brand Leutton Postle was created by Sam Leutton and Jenny Postle, who met at prestigious school Central St Martins in 2010. Whilst Jenny’s graduate collection was bought by Browns, Sam went travelling in China and worked with knitwear specialist Stoll. Upon returning; the brand Leutton Postle was born.
Chosen by Vauxhall Fashion Scout for the Merit Award- their collection of complexly created and unique couture knits were set for a bright future. Bridging the gap between the technically advanced and creatively free, Leutton Postle collates a range of influences- embracing colour, varying surface texture and rich patterns to create beautifully unique knit-based garments for women.
Their debut SS12 season at Vauxhall Fashion Scout was met with praise from critics; an immensely intricate and conceptually beautiful collection with multi-coloured shades and textured materials. They are returning to Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Freemason’s Hall on Tuesday 21st February at 5.00pm.
