Sunday June 6th – University of East London graduate Charlotte Macke‘s collection at Graduate Fashion Week 2010 was entitled “Armour of Me”.

Exploring the plate armoury lethally sharp aesthetics, Armour of me creates a visual dialogue about the possible limits of the body powerful new silhouette. Armoury panels are injected into strong tailoring pieces in order to construct bionic shapes, dynamically reflecting modern woman as powerful urban warriors. Moulding felt and Macramé work is carefully considered to work around the geometry of the female body in order to reshape, resize and rescale into heroic proportions. A strict use of clean, sharp lines controls and exposes the body with precision whilst curved lines, injects hints of provocation. Small chainmail pieces are used as jewellery, working with the garment focusing on protection and creating a strong, striking female silhouette.
