British Fashion Designers, by Hywel Davies and published by Laurence King this month is the first book to embrace fashion talent from all over the UK. Swide takes a preview peek.
Focusing on British designers since 2000 who have made their influence resonate globally, this new book British celebrates those influential designers who have defined contemporary British fashion, and those
individuals who have presented their own radical ideas for fashion.
Challenging preconceived ideas, these British creatives are responsible for building British fashion to being honored internationally. Their messages and aesthetic may be diverse, but their aim is the same - to define their own fashion language and present modern and fundamentally original fashion to a contemporary market.
The book's cover has been photographed by leading fashion photographer, Nick Knight and features creatives such as hatmaker Stephen Jones who is profiled in the book.
