Studio East Nomimation: Laura J Thomas


Designs by L J Thomas
I was asked by Studio East to make a nomination for their ‘Next Big Thing’, identifying the newest designers and artists.
I nominated Laura J Thomas, after seeing her collection at the Manchester Metropolitain Univeristy graduate fashion show.
“I recently saw Laura ThomasÔÇÖ designs at the MMU BA fashion show, and was totally captivated. Out of all the designs hers, for me, had the most instant desirability contrasted with runway impact. I would have happily bought and worn every piece. The collection is based on AlzheimerÔÇÖs disease and the ridges it creates in the brain as the disease progresses, the tucks in the garments represent this. ThomasÔÇÖ aim is to create clothes for a consumer who appreciates high quality garments.”
You can see more of Laura’s designs on her website http://www.ljthomas.org/ and view and vote for the nomination here Laura Thomas. Here pieces are available to purchase on request [email protected].

  1. I have to say, I have a sick obsession with draped skirts and that champagne one on the top left is seducing me with its soft drape.

  2. I can see why you picked her! Gorgeous! Interesting that the inspiration was Alzheimer's disease, not something that would normally be considered fashionable!

  3. Hi there-wow, very talented young lady. I do love your Ann D jacket, very stylish and unique and your whole outfit looks fab!
