Backstage Pass // Phoebe English Spring 2013
I have always found the the actual process of design more fascinating than the end result. It is the story of how it came to be as it were, that intrigues me.
It is no wonder than that I find Phoebe English’s (the designer is pictured being interviewed in image three from top) work interesting. The designer continually explores the design process and the maker in her work.
This season, everything from the palette (white inspired by masking tape, blue informed by blue tailoring chalk etc) to the actual composition of garments was inspired by the process of design.
Particularly memorable is the bugle beading, the bell wing like sleeves, the organic feel of the garments and the metal forms models worn around ears and in their mouth.
