Last week I was invited to preview the Warehouse Designer Competition winner for 2011, Shivani Chavda. This year Warehouse, in partnership with the British Fashion Council’s College Council, not only chose a designer as the winner but also talented photographer Emily Smeaton! Emily worked with Shivani to produce the look book for her collection!
I have to say I was stunned with what I discovered at Warehouse. Chavda’s pieces are completely original in design, look and feel. She did all the textile design herself based on sketches and drawings she created. Each piece is like a miniature sketch book splattered on your body and it works! My goodness does it work! I’m hoping to be out and about sport the floor length dress over New York Fashion Week so keep an eye out! The collection will hit stores during London Fashion Week so keep an eye out! These are pieces you’ll have forever as part of your archive closet!
