CLAIRE BARROW // Renowned for her hand-painted techniques and naive illustrations, the multi-disciplinary artist Claire Barrow made her London fashion week debut in 2012.
ART SCHOOL // Partners in life and work, Eden Loweth and Tom Barratt founded Art School in 2016. Blurring the lines of menswear and womenswear, the capsule collection centres on creating a modern representation of their non-binary ethos.
PAULA KNORR // The German-born, London-based designer, graduated from The Royal College of Art in 2015. Her innovative draping and cutting techniques won the attention of the British Fashion Council, who awarded her NEWGEN.
MATTY BOVAN // The designer and senior editor of Love magazine exploded onto the London fashion scene with his MA collection, a kaleidoscopic collection of 3-D knitwear, unexpected textures and colour clashes.
WANDA NYLON // The buzzy label by Paris-based Johanna Senyk. A former ANDAM winner, her capsule collection is inspired by outerwear and the label’s signature trench coat.
