We’ve always got our ears to the ground at this time of year for new denim design talent. We discovered Emilie Hale today, who showed at the graduate fashion week event at Earls Court, London last tuesday.

We chatted to her via email today and found out a little more about her and the collection.

She recently graduated from Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, where she studied womenswear. She describes her design style as channeling oversized sihllouettes, lots of chunky knitwear and textured layering with an “anti fashion” quirky attitude and androgynous edge. Inspiration for her final collection came from the film KIDS and documentary photography by Larry Clark exploring youth, society and rebellion. Silhouette and styling were mainly influenced by the grunge movement and Kurt Cobain‘s iconic image. Collection highlights include jumpers and pajama-style printed silks complete with powder blue y-fronts, and denim that was tie-dye bleached by hand in her bath.

She says:

 “Graduate fashion week has been an amazing platform for me in terms of getting my designs noticed and has aided in my ambition of one day having my own label. For now I am very keen on gaining more industry experience, I want to learn more and develop my own abilities as a designer.”
