London Fashion Week17th – 22nd September 2020

Over 80 brands large and small gathered to show their Spring Summer 2021 collections. Most chose digital film to show their collections, while others live streamed a catwalk show. Only a few chose to have physical performances, with select appointments and limited numbers attending.

Masks & beyond

I have been following Thread Stories for a few years, and have seen the designer grow
and grow in popularity. This Irish designer has a strong instagram presence, and has
featured in the likes of iD, Colossal magazine and The NY Times. Her masks are surreal,
sea creature-like forms that flow and fall around the head. They are made from yarn with
techniques like crochet, knitting and fringing. Each starts as a crocheted balaclava, which
is layered with thread to make wild 3D shapes.
