Amy Thomson’s graduate collection focuses on fashion as a canvas for art, using hand rendered illustrations and surface prints to tell a narrative. Drawing on the details is the ethos to her graduate collection; blurring the lines between fashion design and illustration with contemporary awareness and innovation.
Her collection focuses on hand illustrative details throughout allowing her to design garments that relate to a particular character in a 3D way. By creating a narrative, Amy builds relationships with different audiences, addressing issues and values allowing the wearer to express issues they connect to through clothing. The personal nature of the hand rendered illustrative pieces also gives a luxury element to the pieces being unique and one off’s adding value and personal relationship to each product.
Amy's graduate collection was showcased at the Leeds International Festival in April and following that she was published in Drapers Magazine.
