I ♥ You Click: August 17, 2009

August 17, 2009

Sorry for the short hiatus! Summer semester has just ended and I’ve been picking up more shifts at work – I am enjoying the winding down days before my final year in fashion school starts. Today I’ve only got 2 clicks for you, but that’s because they are both so full of eye candy and inspiration and fashion delicious-ness. Both are textile centric blogs that give upcoming designers the spotlight; glad to see blogs like this promoting the work of new innovators in fashion design. Enjoy!

KNITkicks

An awesome blog showcasing contemporary runway ready knitwear design. I love seeing the innovation and creativity going on with knits here, and how they translate to high fashion instead of the usual suspect: grandma’s cardigans. The blog did a great series on 2009 graduates. Below: Pandora Bahrami’s graduate collection.

Spot On: Textiles

This blog by textile design student Ditte Lerche was actually inspired by KNITkicks, but with less of a focus solely on knitwear, and encompassing a wider range of textile design for fashion. I love the interviews which go into the process and development of designing a textile-based fashion collection, and most of the posts focus on current students and recent graduate work. So refreshing to see among a sea of style-focused fashion blogs – this one focuses on design and innovation, and gives upcoming designers a place to showcase their work! Below: Louise Bravery’s 2009 graduate collection.
