Graham Fan’s graduate fashion collection

February 27th, 2014 by retail design blog

The fibrous metallic garments in Central Saint Martins graduate Graham Fan’s London Fashion Week collection are reminiscent of wire brushes used for cleaning the dishes. MA Fashion graduate Graham Fan’s initial material experiments for his final collection were influenced by Thomas Heatherwick’s woven metal facade at Guy’s Hospital in London.

Metallic plastic cords were handwoven unevenly to create patterns for the jackets, tops and dresses, plus skirts with 1950s shapes. The threads loop back on themselves to form turtlenecks, cuffs and hems. Fan incorporated mohair, leather strips and fish wire into some sections of the weave to add texture.
