Winning graduate collection for Warehouse launches during London Fashion Week

Fashion 14 February 2014

As part of a national competition run by Warehouse in partnership with the British Fashion Council, Fashion Design BA Honours graduate Philli Wood's award-winning collection was launched this week to coincide with London Fashion Week.

The 12 piece collection has already received favourable reviews in The Times and Elle UK and is available to buy in selected Warehouse stores and Warehouse online from 13 January.

“The collection was initially inspired by American Indian Inuit,” said Philli. “I experimented with large over-sized silhouettes and chunky knitwear. I printed images of cable knits onto exaggerated shapes to give the illusion of knitwear. The bright, clashing colour palette was inspired by installation artist Dan Flavin who uses florescent strip lights.”
