Fashion in a time of emergency. How dose design evolve?
We are not prepared for out new world. A landscape that we have no idea if we can survive in. Humans are the problem, and humans are also the solution.
Phoebe English is asking these questions. Like many fashion designers; drawing attention to the topic of human survival.
SS20 Collection is founded on attempts at problem solving with pieces encompassing: Zero-waste pattern cutting. Recycled products from off-cuts. High quality dead stock fabric sourcing. Nylon made from regenerated ocean plastics.
These are just some of the methods going into Phoebe English designs, where she is continually challenging the fashion industry.
