Here we share the fashion styles and new collection of Blackburn University Centre graduate Lauren Dwyer, she describes her work as “combining hand drawn illustrations and complimentary silhouettes to create luxury.”
“The concept of this collection was to create a variety of surface prints influenced by attributes from tropical climates. Floral, wildlife and architectural inspirations were combined with beachwear silhouettes to enhance both the print and figure. The combination of hand drawn print and laser cut designs construct a surreal approach to the beachwear collection. The vibrant colour palette throughout unites the variation of print details and emphasises the female figure. Taking inspiration from the 1950’s the design the silhouette to compliment the wearer with the techniques of lace finishing and ruffles.
I studied at Blackburn University Centre and I am currently in the process of retailing the collection both in the United Kingdom and in the UAE.”
