We’ve a mixed bag for today’s Fashion Round Up, but interestingly neither a flesh coloured latex two-piece, nor a pair of white creepers make it in. Funny that. Instead an announcement from Fashion Scout, one from the Opening Ceremony gang, plus Miu Miu does Venice.
Hannah Williams, Helen Lawrence and Renli Su will show in Fashion Scout’s Ones To Watch SS14 showcase next month. Following in the footsteps of Eudon Choi and Phoebe English before them, the three designers will debut their collections at the Freemasons Hall as part of London Fashion Week, it was announced this week.
Showing her graduate collection at Graduate Fashion Week back in June, Williams was the winner of both the Innovation and Womenswear Awards with her silicon pieces.
Lawrence meanwhile, showed at Somerset House in February as part of the Central Saint Martins MA course, and Su is a graduate of the China Central Academy of Fine Arts who went on to complete an MA at London College of Fashion in Fashion Design and Technology.
Opening Ceremony will make its solo debut at New York Fashion Week next month, with a show and pop-up market. Prior to SS14 Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have previewed the Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony line, but this is the first time the brand will go it alone.
The pop-market will take place at Pier 57 in New York’s Hudson Rover Park and will be called Opening Ceremony BTW (by the water). Formed of shipping containers, ‘shops’ will offer a variety of fashion labels and food vendors. The market will run from 5th September through to the 12th, daily from 11am to 7pm.
Lastly, Miuccia Prada’s Miu Miu label last night premiered two new short films as part of its Women’s Tales series. Shown at the Venice Film Festival, the shorts – by Hiam Abbass and Ava DuVernay – are numbers five and six in the series, which was born from ‘the need to stimulate reflection on women’s experiences’ the brand has said. Directed exclusively by women, you can watch all of them here.
‘Le Donne delle Vucciria’ and ‘The Door’ follow Massy Tadjedin’s ‘It’s Getting Late’, which featured actresses such as Gemma Arterton and a cameo by Zola Jesus. Today and tomorrow sees a selection of discussions at the Film Festival from other directors and actresses who make up the series.
