Fashion In Motion: Craig Lawrence

19.07.2012 | Blog | BY:

Avant-garde knitwear designer, Craig Lawrence, will be presenting a retrospective of his work this Friday as part of the Victoria & Albert museum’s illustrious Fashion In Motion series. The young British designer will be following in the footsteps of fashion greats such as Gareth Pugh (whom Lawrence worked with for a number of seasons), Vivienne Westwood and the late Alexander McQueen, all of who have previously staged celebrated shows at the V&A.

Fusing classic craftsmanship with contemporary concepts has become the foundation to Lawrence’s eponymous label. Every collection since its conception 3 years ago has featured Kyototex (innovative metallic foil wrapped yarns) as well as other unexpected materials creating complex yet delicate structures that continually push the boundaries of conventional knitwear design.
