Victoria Butcher is an aspiring designer, specialising in womenswear, who has gained several years of design, manufacturing and pattern cutting experience studying at well-known institutions such as Ravensbourne and The London College of Fashion. She is extremely hardworking and enthusiastic, and challenges herself to push her design talents to the limit experimenting with other pathways within fashion such as menswear and accessories. She has previously worked for Georgia Hardinge and Charnos Lingerie where she gained a hands-on experience of the fashion industry. Victoria has grown to become a skilled creative who loves to experiment with texture and silhouette and this is reflected in her graduate collection.
Victoria’s graduate collection has been inspired by the continuation of existence after a possible apocalypse and is entitled ‘Ad Infinitum’ meaning without an end or to infinity. Focusing on the concept that mankind may have to revert back to a primitive state of being and adapt to survive in a desolate landscape that was once a thriving environment, the looks within the collection are inspired by decaying carcasses, a fractured existence and the virginity of a new life cycle.
The collection as a whole depicts the fragility of our existence and the purification of mankind through the use of a soft grey colour palette and the combination of soft finishes with a protective shell. Victoria has created a luxurious feel to her Autumn/Winter collection through quality and hand-made fabrics and her garments are wearable yet distinct.
