Kelly Shaw has our attention. This young designer from the UK has something special going on here, on so many levels:
1. She’s pulling together Grayson Perry, the Occupy movement, The London Riots, fashion from in between WW1 + 2, and George Orwell, into one eclectic contemporary blend of patterning, color, and design.
2. Her design screams, “Lighten the fuck up!” She’s playing with silhouettes that shouldn’t work together. She’s having fun and looks gorgeous on so many levels.
3. She’s launching her Spring/Summer 2013 Collection right around the corner and she hasn’t held back with anything. Her messages are clear and we have a feeling this line will make some serious noise, if it hasn’t begun to already.
