The UK’s Emerging Talent: The Fashion Awards 2016

BY GAIL SANDRA JOHN

Celebrating the design talent that is Molly Goddard who was awarded winner of British Emerging Talent at Monday’s ceremony at The Fashion Awards 2016 in partnership with Swarovski.

With her innovative womenswear, Goddard has made a name for herself by creating beautiful voluminous tulle dresses. The innovative womenswear designer has become an emerging and blossoming force in the fashion industry. A well deserved winner!

To date, Goddard has created an interactive exhibition at the NOW Gallery in Greenwich named ‘What I Like’. With elongated versions of her tulle dresses suspended from the ceiling, hemlines sweeping the floor beneath, visitors are seated and given needles and thread to then add their own hand embroidery to the dresses. What is created is a collage of different designs and styles around the dress. “We hope to encourage people to become interested in and appreciative of the craft of embroidery, whether an office worker taking a moment of meditation after work, a parent teaching their children after school or a someone with a few minutes spare before a gig at the O2.”

I myself have always wanted to be able to embroider at least my initials on something so I think I’ll be heading down to NOW at some point. Watch this space!
