Celine Zara

As a concept and bespoke designer not afraid to think and design ‘outside the box’, versatility within conceptual, statement and original designs is where Celine Zara’s creative flare lies. She holds a strong belief that any design should tell a story, create atmosphere, provoke emotion and most importantly, have meaning. Celine’s collections are often inspired by reflections on society and aim to produce a positive message to make people think and reflect. Using physical objects for design details and silhouette Celine produces creative, unique, structured designs with a strong emphasis on remaining true to the concept research. Passionate about using unconventional materials, her recent Graduate collection featured metal structures, inspired by the internal structures of Cavendish Pianos, which adorned the body, working beautifully with the garments in order to create the overall shape and look of  the collection ‘Sonata in F’. She thrives on using her unique creative vision to find beauty and inspiration in the most unconventional of places, pushing the boundaries of fashion in order to create something truly inspiring.

Panna

Panna designs clothing solely through experimentation with advanced materials and unorthodox methods of construction. The initial focus on purely how the clothing is made removes any historical or cultural referencing from the design process.

This process allows for genuinely new and organic fashion to form through the garments; as a direct expression of how they were made.

Marie Sansome

Marie Sansome studied fabric & garment design at Hinckley College.

She won the Independent Designer of the year at the Midlands Fashion Awards, 2018.

Marie says: Designing for me is like an addiction, connected to oneself, a part of my spirit, it's often a form of escapism for me too.” I design for a feminine, futuristic, fearless women whom I visualise. The collection I plan on showing is elegant, original and I like to think exciting too. As part of my design process I refer back, reflecting on concepts by pioneering designers and icons, blending with my creative notion. I do love it when you see your ideas become real. This drives my ambition; I want to do more. “
