As a designer Lucy Baxter challenges the boundaries of handcrafts by experimenting with innovative and sustainable techniques infusing glamour, colour and texture into her designs. She has worked in London and Milan in various roles in the fashion industry gaining experience at companies including Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Brioni and the Max Mara Group.
Her graduate collection ‘BeDazzled’ opened Kingston University's MA fashion show and it was also selected to show at Wuhan Fashion Week 2018 in China. This collection captures the shimmering glamour of Peruvian dress which is rich in embellishment, colour and story. It identifies the unique ethnic cultures and regional costumes of Peru by exploring colour, pattern and handcrafts of Peruvian costume and textiles through contemporary embellishments.
Focusing on weaving technique where recycled hand-cut plastic is intricately woven into mesh, playing around with vivid blended colours and geometric shapes.
