RAZZLE DAZZLE

Christopher Raeburn may be one of London’s rising stars of ethical fashion, but he still has plenty of firsts to add to his already-impressive list of accolades. Not only was Raeburn the first ethical designer to show at the prestigious NEWGEN showcase at London Fashion Week in February, but he also became the first designer to exhibit both mens- and womenswear at NEWGEN this season. (Previous talent designers who have benefited from the NEWGEN platform include Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, and Erdem.)

“Dazzle” was inspired by the vivid camouflage patterns used on battleships in the 1920s.

Raeburn’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection, “Dazzle,” holds true to its name. Inspired by the vivid camouflage patterns used on battleships in the 1920s to confuse the enemy, the collection features the designer’s trademark intelligent, functional designs. As ever, all his garments are produced in his East London studio.

Working with graphic designer Régis Tosetti and Sam Scott-Hunter, Raeburn also produced a clever little film that highlights the elements of his Dazzle line, using sounds from his studio to create the soundtrack.

    I am in love with re-purposed parachute fabric. Have you seen the work of designer Nike Kondakis? I have a sweater/dress made from strips of parachute material knitted by women in Kenya.
    The shape is fabulous… and it’s machine washable!
