Recent printed textiles graduate, Jennifer Varty, sets off for New York next week to start her year long internship at Collection 18 where she will be designing prints for womenswear accessories across a range of designer brands.
Jennifer was interviewed for the post at New Designers by creative director, Rachel Rowberry, an ex-Winchester School of Art graduate herself. Her final collection, inspired by mountaineering, and comprised of finely illustrated and textural prints and a sophisticated colour palette drew the attention of many visitors at both the WSA degree show and New Designers.
Graphic, minimal and angular Winchester school of Art Fashion Graduate Alumni Linjing Feng as featured on http://idolmag.co.uk offers up a lookbook which suggests experience far beyond her years.
Keeping to a monochrome palette, Linjing allows the cuts and lines to take the limelight. Shot against a white backdrop and black panelled beams, model Dani Kocianova from IMG Models rests on a misplaced ladder, a simple black box or sneaks off behind corners.
Overall the lookbook, shot by Iris Bjork, is an example of this young designer’s strong identity and promising future. Linjing Feng is definitely one to watch out for.
