BA Fashion graduate Ed Marler will make his London Fashion Week debut in the Fashion East catwalk show in September 2014.
Fashion East is a scheme that supports young designers by providing catwalk sponsorship, financial bursaries, Paris sales showroom support and ongoing business mentoring. Joining Marler for the group catwalk show will be Fashion East’s AW14 breakouts Helen Lawrence, who graduated from our MA Fashion course, and Louise Alsop.
Marler’s 2013 graduate collection The Trials of an Impossible Princess featured an opulent mish-mash of faux leopard, blue denim bell sleeves and a dress of knotted pink satin bandanas. Accessories included giant ‘MUM’ door knocker earrings and crowns moulded from furniture.
Rising star Marler has already made a name for himself, with fans ranging from M.I.A. to megastylist Katie Grand. Fashion East Founder and Director Lulu Kennedy MBE said: “Ed is great. I like his vision and how he puts things together so confidently. He’s a very fun new addition to our brilliant girls Louise Alsop and Helen Lawrence, who made strong debuts last season.”
