Brass Collars for Fashion Fringe 2011

Congratulations to Fyodor Golan and Sophie Breitmeyer for their recent success in Fashion Fringe 2011 at London Fashion Week!

Fashion Fringe is an annual competition to find young talented designers and help launch them onto the London fashion scene. Judged by a distinguished panel of industry professionals drawn from the creative, media and retail worlds of fashion, including Anne Pitcher of Selfridges, Claudia Schiffer and Roy Peach, of the London College of Fashion. The three finalists were asked to present their creative, and experimental, work at a tense Fashion Fringe catwalk event at Somerset House, London that took place as part of London Fashion Week this September.

The winner was Fyodor Golan, a design duo consisting of Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman who met in London after studying at the prestigious schools of Istituto Marangoni, London and The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp. Previously working with Alexander McQueen, Raf Simmons, Richard Nichol and Issey Miyake, they launched their own label in 2010 fusing their imaginative approach with beautiful hand detailing, leather scarring and the manipulation of fabric.

For the Fashion Fringe catwalk, Fyodor Golan collaborated with Sophie Breitmeyer who designed four collars specifically for the show. These brass sculptures, detailed with petals and hummingbirds, mirror perfectly the complex patterns and weaves of the Fyodor Golan work.

The new collection of pearl jewellery designed by Sophie Breitmeyer will debut in the next few weeks. We can't wait to show you them.
