Jenny Cleeton has spoken to the designer, from Glasgow Clyde, who was recently named by Vogue as ‘the one to watch’ at the event.
After studying at Glasgow Clyde College, Rebecca Torres has shot to success after being named by Vogue as “the one to watch” after Asos bought her entire collection in 2011, “They asked if they could show it [the collection] to Asos,” Torres comments after receiving a call from an old university associate, “The next thing I knew Asos wanted to buy my entire collection.” Torres was put on the website as her own person rather than by Asos which meant she started receiving calls frequently which is what prompted her to make her own website with the help of her brother.

As the obvious minimalist I am, I couldn’t help it but fall heedlessly in love with David Koma’s latest collection. Searching up every single piece of clothing he’s ever made, I am now convinced that he may or may not be my current favorite designer.
His creations reminds of less war ready and more sophisticated and pastel-ish ancient Japanese armors.

Keeping it short and sweet, this week’s Fashion Round Up should really be called The News in Brief. But it’s not, so deal with it. As the heat continues outdoors, indoors the temperature’s been turned up in anticipation of London Fashion Week, which is increasingly playing on our minds. Fashion East’s SS14 line-up revealed, plus J.W. Anderson’s first ever campaign. For their 27th consecutive catwalk show, Fashion East have announced Spring Summer 14 will follow in the footsteps of Autumn Winter 13 and have invited back Ashley Williams, Claire Barrow and Ryan Lo. All young in age and relatively still new to the industry, the three designers boast a variety of influences and different aesthetics. For Claire and Ryan this marks their third London Fashion Week under the Fashion East umbrella (having both previously debuted with presentations for SS13), while Ashley – in theory at least, given past practice – still has another season with Lulu Kennedy to come.
