English Debut
Susanna Lau's view of London S/S 2012

Phoebe English' use of knitted hair in her MA collection at Central Saint Martins may have been a bit on the heavy-handed side for me, but these heavily pleated canvas pieces from her collection shown at Vauxhall Fashion Scout's Ones to Watch definitely made a stronger impact. Deliberately fraying at the sides, the recollection of 16th century ruffs or Egyptian papyrus textures, the collection showed English as someone promising to look out for.
