Sade English Designing garments that are not built to suit society
What a fabulous tag line. When I first cast my eyes across the collection from Sade English, I must admit I did judge, and I did screw my nose up. But, after researching about Sade English and finding out more about the creative process behind her designs, I fell in LOVE with the concept.
Reading through Sade English’s Bio, I loved the sense of ‘F*ck You’ to conformity. She will not design fashion for the masses. It will not depict modern silhouettes or encapsulate the female form. Instead, English creates a movement with her fashion designs. One that steps out of the box, blending femininity with masculinity to the point where it is difficult to draw a line between them. This whole creative idea of combining the inner and outer self as one through the careful design of garments is evident through her collection.
Showcasing her collection this coming Friday at Brighton Fashion Week Zeitgeist show, I am sure you can agree we will all be in for a treat. I expect her collection to really push the boundaries of fashion and ultimately challenge what we would call ‘beautiful’ in the fashion industry.
