Currently reading : Una B’s Back
She’s never been away of course but new.. (now I have to find the word: work, designs, collection. None apply).
New objects by Una Burke were on display at Feemasons Hall as part of Vauxhall Fashion Scout. Apart from the fact that British Fashion Week is about as dull as life gets, seeing her and her objects was very exciting. More parred down, more usable and sales conscious than her graduate collection but without losing the craft or personality or credibility. She’s surrounded by some interesting characters too. Colodion Wetplate Artist, Stefan Sappert had photographed the objects and these deserve a post of their own but in the meantime see what he’s doing here > http://www.stefansappert.com/ . And an accompanying short film by 2 very attractive people will get a post here as soon as possible. Sorry, I forgot your complicated names.
Since then, from http://www.thefashionscout.com/ :
The pieces are intricately constructed using soft leather in a range of dark colours; the strips of leather are folded and held in place by studs and bolts. The complexity of the structures is baffling, but they would be a fabulous way to add a harder edge to a simple look.
