London Fashion Week: Quilting Hits The Catwalk!

Quilting is officially on trend but have you ever thought about making yourself a quilted dress?! This years London Fashion Week might just inspire us to do so. Designers Alice Temperley and Roksanda Ilincic have come up with some really beautiful collections with a big nod to the revival of skilled craftsmanship.

Jessica Stockholder and Mel Bochner are 'Roksanda Ilincic' both designers are known for their emphatic use of color and this is made apparent by the newest Autumn/Winter collection. The range sees a variety of different sewing techniques put together to create a cocophany of texture and colour. Just like  Jane Brocket teaches on her 'Quilt Me' course at Ray Stitch, it's all about the diverse mix!

Next up we have Alice Temperly's wonderfully graphic collection which draws inspiration from Art Nouveau and Byzantine mozaic patterns. Temperly has used a fine, micro quilting technique on her evening wear, which contrasts beautifully with her embroidered organza dresses and blanket sized scarves.
