Discover Phoebe English‘ Spring Summer 2020 attempts at solutions collection, that explores how fashion and design evolve in a time of emergency, where humans are both problem and solution, presented on Sunday, September 15th, during the ongoing London Fashion Week.
“Taking time out from showing in February and June has allowed us the time to elaborate on our research and knowledge as a team. Producing the collections in a slower, smaller and more considered manner has become the only conclusion to going forwards, if that is indeed what we are doing. We have used this time to explore approaches and actions to making work which can be described as attempts at solutions. Our intentions now are for certified or reclaimed components only, moving away from virgin resources to a majority of ‘not virgin’ materials in all new work. To use design as a tool to ‘use up’ the ‘waste’ the systems we work within create and to promote and share actively positive virgin materials. 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?“
