R E P O R T / J. JS Lee aw13









This London fashion week post is deliberately 3 months late.
At the time every single inch of digital fashion space was saturated by fashion week related images.
This was just to good to let it get lost in that sea of runway snapshots. Jackie JS Lee was my favorite show in London.

According to the papers on the benches on of the show, this was going to be a collection inspired by the African continent.
But as soon as the models came out it was clear that Jackie stepped far away from all the cliches involving african inspired fashion.
Instead she focussed on applying traditional african weaving techniques on her minimalist designs. Combining thick, robust loop knits with delicate fabrics
and incorporating bits of fluffy wool on top of the loafers and sandal-loafers. The show closed with four enormous box jackets in the thickest imaginable wool, too beautiful to capture well on camera.
I was lucky enough to get to meet the lovely Jackie herself and hear her explain about her urge to travel, and the way these trips inspire her.

I love Jackie JS Lee! She has such an inspirational and raw talent, I completely agree with ypu; I often feel like during fashion week we are just drowned in the digital coverage of major drsign houses and it never leaves room for little hidden gems like J JS Lee :)

Lovely collection. Sad to see it was inspired by 'Africa', yet just 2 (?) black models on the runway....

The editing is so ethereal - it's like a slightly delayed mint after a 3-course onslaught of runway images. J. JS Lee is always gorgeous, but I love the organic, thoughtful way her African influence was integrated into the garments for this collection.

You are so lucky to get to meet Jackie!! I do hope that you'll share her reason behind this fashion show. Anyway, I still love the theme and the designs of each dress.

I appreciate you waiting the time to publish these pictures! Beautiful inspiration that I'd seriously hate to lose amidst the fashion week tidal wave. Great way of manipulating and experimenting with the structure of knits.

Hey nice site, simply looking round some sites, appears a very nice theme you are using. I’m presently using Drupal for a few of my sites but seeking to switch one of them over to a platform very much like yours as a test site.
