Craig Lawrence SS11 Collection Film from Jessica Warren on Vimeo.

From the man who brought us woven emergency plastic tape gowns comes his new collection inspired by mermaids and sirens from ancient Greece. Craig Lawrence’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection was recently presented at London Fashion Week, with this short film looping the entire show. He has used glistening Japanese Kyototex metallic yarn to create fine weaves that resemble hand made fishing nets which encapsulate the wearer.

We are very keen to see more of Craig Lawrence’s work, as his couture shows just seem to become more and more theatrical. Lady Gaga is also a huge fan of Craig Lawrence’s work, and she has worn several of his creations on tour, she also interviewed him for MTV.
