Fashion in Motion is a series of live fashion events presented against the unique backdrop of the Victoria and Albert Museum. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings the excitement and spectacle of the high fashion catwalk to a wide audience.
Ipswich-born designer Craig Lawrence studied at Central St Martins and whilst there created knitted pieces for Gareth Pugh over six seasons. On graduating in 2009, Lawrence established his eponymous label with the support of the British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN programme and rapidly became known for his innovative work in the field of knitwear. His sophisticated, playful and elegant collections are remarkable for their craftsmanship and individuality.
Lawrence uses unlikely and varied materials such as sweet wrappers, gold foil, bin bags and Kyototex - a Japanese metallic covered yarn - which has been used in every one of his collections. Devotees of his designs include Tilda Swinton, Lady Gaga and Björk. Earlier this year, Lawrence was awarded a place on the Centre for Fashion Enterprise’s Venture Programme.
