Feature: Hatch'd Fashion Week: Lauren Bown

Lauren told us more about her beautiful final collection, which is inspired by the art and craft movement with a 1950's twist. 

HM: What inspired your collection?

LB: My collection was inspired by the 1950's sillohette and elegance of the era mixed with the Victorian art and craft movement, espeically William Morris' floral prints which are present in each of my outfits.

HM: What has been the highlight of your studies?

LB: The highlight for me has been the acheivement of seeing my concept come to life when creating my collection and seeing it on models at my photoshoot. It looked exactly the way I had hoped for, and more! 

HM: What are your plans for when you graduate?

LB: After I graduate I hope to get my foot in the door with a brand and explore different aspects of the fashion industry. Hopefully I will find a position that suit me.
