Designer Focus: Silvia Beccaria

It was doing textiles research today that reminded me of a fabulous designer I met at London Fashion week back in September, Silvia Beccaria.

Describing herself as a 'Fibre Artist', Silvia Beccaria uses materials such as latex, plastic and rubber, woven on a traditional loom, to create bold, eye-catching ruffs and collars. I love her use of colour, and the entirely different look that is created by using non-fabric textures, plus they're huge and sculptural (which we know I love). This jewellery is exciting, and this designer is going places, watch this space...
