From Couch to Catwalk
Posted: 06 April 2015
In a recent collaboration, Sarah Hellen and Blowden have taken traditional textiles from the home - all the way to the London Fashion Week catwalk. Blowden's Heritage Blanket Collection dates back to 1760. The company have revived a range of patterns from a Welsh weaver's design book and these patterns - usually found on decor items - provided the fabric for Sarah's designs. Oversized coats, jackets, and even footwear make up the collection designed in the 'Hiraeth' pattern. We love that this menswear collection showcases traditional craft and textiles in a strikingly modern way. Watch the catwalk show here.
