London-based fashion designer Holly Fowler is one to watch out for. Merging couture fashion design with virtuoso painting, she practices a unique form of hand-painted fashion.
Shunning conventional digital printing techniques, Fowler’s work is founded on the notion that the silhouette is a blank canvas and each garment is a painting. What results is a unique hybrid of art and fashion, with each piece representing hundreds of hours of work.
Inspired by jewelry, Maharajas and British Regalia, her hand-painted designs are emblazoned with rich detailed gems and ornaments. With its inherent delicate intricacy, bold colors and dramatic shapes her work is quite simply, stunning.
Fowler offers a fresh, bold approach to contemporary fashion design and it comes as no surprise that luxury high-end retailer Bergdorf Goodman has already commissioned her. With her signature aesthetic, Holly Fowler is sure to go strength to strength –watch this space.
