2022 Graduate Showcase: Emma Gifford

“Purple Hairstreak”

Autumn Winter 23

Rooted in the late nineties, this collection is influenced by the symbolism of butterflies and concept of personal growth. Taking references from childhood clothes, memory, and family photography, garments playfully reconfigure sportswear details, cuts, and fabrics, with a thorough technical exploration of jersey and stretch fabrics and their application. This collection projects a confident vision of femininity in sportswear, balancing a playful maturity across the six looks which is accented by the deep purple highlight and styled with butterfly printed white tights.
