Lucy has recently competed her final year of the BA (Hons) Fashion Degree course at Coventry University. She has designed a six-piece outfit collection based around the feeling of comfort. Her main inspiration derives from sculptures by Magdalena Abakanowicz.
Her juxtaposition on materials inspired Lucy to utilize the correct fabrics to visually portray the feeling of comfort. Thus, leading he to use soft faux furs, satins and comforting heavier drills. These are all within a warm colour pallet consisting of creams, greens and beiges with hints of greys and pinks. Lucy consciously chose to work with faux fur as she prides her collection on being cruelty free.
The focus of her collection is to use comforting fabrics alongside textured materials to create a sense of warmth and relaxation. She plans to continue designing stylish yet cosy garments to inject comfort into the lives of the modern-day woman.
