LONDON — Fashion East, the London non-profit organization that showcases emerging designers’ collections, has detailed its women’s wear lineup for spring 2016.
The three labels that will host presentations on Sept. 19 in London are Caitlin Price, Richard Malone and This is The Uniform.
Price is showing for the second time as part of Fashion East, after making her debut with the collective in February. Then, the Central Saint Martins MA graduate showed a collection that melded 19th-century period details with sportswear, as in duchesse satin tracksuits appliqued with rosettes.
Richard Malone and This is The Uniform are both showing as part of Fashion East for the first time. Malone is graduate of Central Saint Martins’ BA fashion program, where he won the LVMH Grand Prix scholarship in 2013, while This is the Uniform is designed by Jenna Young, who graduated in fine art textiles from Goldsmiths University in London.
Lulu Kennedy, Fashion East’s director, commented that “all three designers are strong-minded individuals and their girl/woman knows what she’s about,” she said.
