Spring / Summer ’13 CollectionLaura Stevens’ collection has drawn references from American photographer Joel Sternfeld’s First Pictures in the 1970s and the films of David Lynch. The use of cyanotype, an ultra-violet sensitive contact printing process, has determined the silhouette and colour of each outfit, influenced by Sternfeld’s pictures. Each garment has been exposed to the sun, in the same process of producing a photograph, printing the image with light. The linear silhouettes acting as the character, the blueprint serving as the mise-en-scene, with particular reference to the film noir characters depicted in Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks, Agent Dale Cooper and Dorothy Vallens. Seeing without being seen.The collection explores metaphysics, self-awareness in cinema, voyeurism and peeping toms.


Chapter 3. Final Scene
LUCY WEBSTERHer collection is based on the personal memories of childhood escapades of emerging sexuality, the combination of innocence and naivety with an experimental curiosity of new emotions. It portrays her obsession with girls, and the types of characters that stimulate her creativity, inspired by photographer Cindy Sherman. Her silhouettes are oversized with a masculine touch emphasizing youth and innocence with contrasting girlie and boyish elements shown by her support from Vans shoes.Lucy has interned at the likes of Louise Gray and explored her styling side by assisting for Fran Burns.www.lucywebster.co.uk
