GFW: Stephanie Hemphill

without comments

Sunday June 6th – University of East London graduate Stephanie Hemphill‘s collection at Graduate Fashion Week 2010 as entitled “Smocking Altrasex”.

Smocking Altrasex collection plays on the idea that religion is often mocked and of sex on the church alter, reflecting the cheeky side of the collection contradicting the disciplined life in a convent. The starting point was a photograph of nuns smoking. A contemporary take on the nun’s habit with shorten hemlines, clean pleating, fitted and loose strong silhouettes. Colours include smoky grey, soft pink, creamy latex and electric Mayfair blue. The latex hints at sexual connotations while more structured wools fabrics reflect the discipline of the nuns.
