ABOUT A GIRL A/W 2012/2013 Laura Cazals BA (Hons) Fashion Design Technology: Womenswear, London College of Fashion Investigating the role of Suburbia on the creation of female identity through the understanding of femininity and the duality of the innocent purity and the latent sexuality of youth: this Autumn-Winter collection will be taking inspiration from 1970’s Americana codes combined with the eerie and disturbing atmosphere of a shriveling suburb, where the manufactured rituals of the society and life collide. The silhouette and shapes are inspired by Sally Mann’s beautiful and eerie photographs, films such as The Virgin Suicides and The Graduate, and some timeless American wear, such as biker jackets and cowboy shirts which, combined with more refined and unexpected materials, embellishment and details will create different take on timeless wardrobe staples. The sheer lightness of organza and chiffon is juxtaposed against the solid, padded thickness of leather wool and velvet to translate the transformation of a child to a woman, whilst modest high collared shirts, just over the knee pencil skirts and trousers are cut into by transparency, which serves only to divulge, not to bare, part of the body. Pleated skirts, reminding of children uniform, give a strong contrast to the rebellious biker jackets and fitted trousers which moulds to the body. As an aspiring designer, I wish to create garment that would be coveted both for their wearability and their uniqueness. This ready-to-wear collection mixes and combines elements central to my identity as a designer, and encompasses the essence of my aesthetic and designs, and is aimed to active and urban women who enjoy good quality clothing and has an eye for details.
