British designer Phoebe English presented her Fall Winter 2019.20 collection at the Truman Brewery in East London, during the ongoing London Fashion Week Men’s. The collection is founded on attempts at problem solving and being part of the solution, with the textiles formed from knotted lengths of reclaimed cotton.
Taking time out from showing in september has allowed me the time to explore my own personal, emotional and creative wasteland, in which i find the state of the fashion industry at large, which has brought me to the conclusion of this collection. As I get older the more fragile my creative output has become. Creating the collections in a slower, smaller and More mindful manner has become the only conclusion to going forwards, if that is indeed what we are doing. I have used this time to explore approaches and actions to making work which can be described as attempts at solutions. How we work and what we do and what we have, matters. Everything we have, everything we own, has to come from somewhere and eventually, it has to go somewhere. We are just the middle men. What are we going to do with that? – Phoebe English
