Derek Lawlor is surely one of the most exciting London designers in the city, even though he only graduated recently following the completion of his degree in Textile Design at Central Saint Martins, where he specialised in knitwear. He then studied for a Masters in Fashion Knitwear, earning himself a Distinction in the process, and his knitwear was featured in the Central Saint Martins A/W 09 show at London Fashion Week. He has also interned for Michiko Koshino, Alex Gore Browne, Jasper Garvida and V V Roleaux. His collections has been well executed, with techniques such as weaving to create three-dimensional patterns and unique fabric designs. His Long fringing finished to enhance the modern edge to the collection, and creates further visual movement away from the body. What we like about his collections are his inspiration and the touch of African huts, which goes beyond fabric and ranges from body armour to sculpture and architectural references.
What do you think do you like the collections?
