PARIS PREVIEW| Paris Showroom Designer Kirsty Ward

Fresh from showcasing in Milan with Vogue Italia Talents corner showcase, former Ones to Watch star Kirsty Ward will be taking part in Fashion Scout's Paris Showroom. We're pleased to present Kirsty's A/W13 collection images as well as a quick catch up with the designer herself. 

What you are most looking forward to about Fashion Scout Paris?
I'm currently in Milan showing my A/W13 collection with the Vogue Italia Talents corner, I've shown it to Anna WintoUr, Suzy Menkes and Franca Sozzani amongst others, which has been great for press. But I'm now looking forward to Paris to sort the sales out.

What you think are the advantages of showcasing your designs in Paris?
More buyers, London is great for press but Paris is where the buyers are. The quality of the buyers at fashion scout are great too with a lot of international stores visiting.

What are the main inspirations of your latest collection?
The garments are inspired by a subtle take on ice hockey uniforms mixed with unexpected fabric and big jewellery obviously. We've also done a handbag collaboration this season with Williams handmade which is really exciting.
