This week I looked through the designers that have previously been involved with Fashion East and chose a shortlist which included:
House of Holland
Michael Van Der Ham
Although this looks like an extensive list for a shortlist, I wanted to be sure that I had looked at a range of designers before deciding on one. Some are obviously more well known than others, with Gareth Pugh & House of Holland being recognised instantly. I considered these as they are established and are featured widely within the industry.
From my shortlist I was able to narrow my designers down to one. For this project, I am going to research Louise Goldin. I found her work very inspiring and was surprised that I had not come across it before. I was excited about her collections and instantly wanted to know more about her and how she developed her style, range & her history.
Now that I have decided who I want to research for this project, I am going to start by looking at Goldin’s catwalk collections, starting with her earliest work, right up to her most recent.
Below is my mind map of Fashion East designers.
