Quinn's first cracked canvases

Today's the day of Richard Quinn's floral abundance:
the young designer to be with a natural aesthetic who
conceives his creations like the canvas of a painter
comes from London, namely from Central Saint Martins,
the one and only college with a fashion course deemed
seasoned enough to stage its own show during
 London fashion week.

Fashion print graduate Richard Quinn proves to know
how to create something bold by pushing his design skills
forward: his BA final capsule collection, recently showcased
together with all of this year's graduates at the degree show,
is actually a completely revised tailoring project from his
second year at CSM, a carefree take on couture that has
been wittily hailed as ”cracked couture” by BA fashion
course director Willie Walters. Richard's still a neophyte
yet he gained a noteworthy experience interning at Dior 
in Paris and Richard James in Saville Row while studying
to dare to submit eye-catching dresses with frayed 
edges, some of them courageously ripped in half, 
with large floral motifs and broad stripes 
made with strokes of cobalt blue.


Quinn clearly aimed at producing a subtle hand painted
look by carefully balancing pure white tones with the
screen printing in order to make his freehand drawn
flowers and the glued calico ones on top to come out.
That's why I'm nuts about the photo shoot carried out
for 1 Granary - blog and magazine run ”by the students
of Central Saint Martins” - by a gifted crew made by
photographer Nikolay Biryukov together with stylist
Marina de Magalhaes (in truth, thanks to her website
where I took the gorgeous pics) with make up artist
Marina Keri and hair by Fumihito Maehara.
Kudos to all of them!
