After watching that Dior video about the making of the latest couture collection, I have a new respect for beautifully pleated garments. I think that may have been what initially drew me to the Georgia Hardinge showcase at London Fashion Week. Her collection, titled ‘Fragment’, features some stunningly and innovatively pleated styles blended in with sharp cut and graphically detailed pieces. This collection feels both tough and uncompromising as well as soft and subtle. It’s that brilliant contrast that drives this young British designer’s signature take on modern femininity.
We asked Georgia about the inspiration behind “The fragment collection” and here’s her response:
“The collection is based on mirroring, reflection and shattered fragments of glass and distorted objects. The pleats and print designs are a reflection of shattered glass and we play with this concept throughout the look book.”
