I spotted this Christopher Kane crochet skirt in the July issue of Elle. It can be yours for a mere $1300
The centrepiece of Meadham and Kirchoff’s collection at London Fashion Week was 40 pieces of gansey inspired knitwear created by a group of mainly Moray knitters under the guidance of Di Gilpin. Here is one picture, but is worth checking out more:
“We got on the train at Waverley Station and we knitted all the way down to London,” said Ms Gilpin, who with another Scots knitter enjoyed a few glasses of champagne ahead of yesterday’s runway show and declared the finished event: “absolutely fabulous”. Ms Gilpin, who runs her own knitwear design company, said: “The designers have taken a huge risk in using traditional gansey knit stitchwork on the catwalk, believing in the importance to fashion in making things that are enduring, creative and inspirational.”
On a personal note, I’ve spent the past 6 weeks travelling and exhibiting at regional stitch and craft shows which has been great fun but exhausting. I am really looking forward to my first show at Unravel in Farnham Maltings this weekend!
Spotted in the Joseph window on the Fulham Road today- it took us a second to figure out .
My first thought was short knitted leggings- even worse than knitted lampshades. But then I realized they were sweaters turned upside down with the arms on the legs and presumably hemmed through the neck. I seriously hope this a trend my daughters do not pick up on, although I do have lots of old heavy ski sweaters that could now be put to better use.
