London Fashion Week | 2019


Success at London Fashion Week. The hand painted textiles by Nicola Parente created one of a kind bespoke, fashions for London Fashion Week. Parente collaborated with  fashion  designers Clarence T. Lee and Jerri Duddlesten Moore for Magpies and Peacocks and “Undone” premiered at London Fashion Week Spring 2019. Part of the institution’s Fashion Scout showcase, which highlights up-and-coming progressive and unique designers. Providing an additional style statement, Houston shoe designer Alice D’Italia accessorized the catwalk with its line of custom Italian-made shoes. The nation’s only nonprofit design house, Magpies is most notable for its commitment to crafting fashion from up-cycled and reused source materials in its designs, promoting sustainability in a fashion industry notorious for creating a cycle of excessive waste. A special thanks to Magpies Ahshia Berry and Sarah-Jayne Smith for all your hard work at organizing!
