Grace Haggerty is a British menswear design graduate from the Winchester School of Art. Grace launched her graduate collection in June 2018 at The Vinyl Factory in Soho, London.
With a background in Fine Art and Photography, Grace takes inspiration from photographs, prints, and structures. She experiments with existing garments, deconstructing each component, manipulating its proportions through a variety of pattern draping techniques and draping on the stand, in an effort to create fun, oversized silhouettes, and a refreshing take on menswear.
Grace’s graduate collection was inspired by 1980’s New York City, and the colour story was influenced by paintings and graffiti by Jean-Michel Basquiat. Grace explored the ‘decade of excess’ with regards to silhouette by challenging traditional menswear proportions and layering garments.
