Attire Accessories - Sep/Oct 2018 (Issue 72)

56 Molly Goddard to design LFWF limited-edition tote Molly Goddard specialises in traditional hand-craft techniques such as hand pleating, smocking and crocheting. Her work touches upon themes of special occasions, nostalgia and coming of age, often taking inspiration from party dressing and Sunday best. The techniques that she utilises serve to create clothes that are both delicate and fragile, but the character she designs for conflicts with the beauty of her technique, bringing a clumsy and charming awkwardness to her silhouettes and fabric combinations. This season, London Fashion Week Festival consumers will get a unique piece of backstage history with the tote bag. Molly Goddard said: “This is the print we used for our last show’s crew T-shirts. They are always really special, as they celebrate all the work everyone puts into the show, and we wanted to share this!” Caroline Rush CBE, chief executive of the British Fashion Council said: “Molly’s designs perfectly capture the creativity and energy of London Fashion Week Festival. We were delighted to work with Molly this season on this one-off collector’s tote, and I look forward to seeing the bags used throughout London and further afield.” The Molly Goddard limited-edition tote bag is included in the Silver, Gold and LUXE ticket packages, and a limited number will be available to purchase at the event.
