INSIDE/OUT Lecture Series: Phoebe English
From London, one of twelve winners of the 2016 BFC Fashion Trust Grant, Phoebe English will be coming to talk about their collection.
Phoebe English is a luxury Womenswear and Menswear label. Garments are created with attention to precision and beauty. Laboured construction forms the centre of the design ethos, which embraces an uncompromising attention to finishing and textiles. The design process begins with sampling and is focused on handwork and engineered surfaces. This attention to ‘surface’ is a key aspect of the design process and largely informs how a garment interacts with the movement of the body. Through the resurrection of lost, forgotten or little-used techniques, Phoebe English hopes to raise a respect for construction rather than decoration and bring a new dimension to young London design. Phoebe English is exclusively Made in England.
This event is part of the INSIDE/OUT Lecture Series 2016/17 organised by Professor Simon Morris. For more information on the series visit www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/insideout
