Vincent Lapp is a French born London based Womenswear designer who strives to promote a fashion that engages on political and social matters, in an urge to makes things move positively.
He completed his BA at Central Saint Martins in 2018, developing a collection looking to set as a statement against religious fanaticism, obscurantism and violence. Vincent’s original inspiration came from his sister’s decision to convert to Judaism, submitting to strict rules, combined with the tensed atmosphere around terrorism and religious outfits in France. Using sarcacism to criticise the oppression of the female body in fanatic religious movements, he created one-piece outfits covering entirely the body of his models.
Using velvet in a variety of colours to create a soft touch contrasting with the cold stained glass like aspects of silicone, he showcased his sensitivity for textile manipulation, embellishment and embroidery in addition to his refined and complex pattern cutting earned during his professional experiences.
