Star Wars: Fashion Finds The Force
This winter Lucasfilm unveils a special British fashion initiative to celebrate the renewal of one of contemporary culture’s most enduring creative influences; Star Wars.
10 London-based designers have created original Star Wars: The Force Awakens inspired garments, which will be sold in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity on behalf of Star Wars: Force for Change.
The diverse group of womenswear and menswear designers are; Agi & Sam, Bobby Abley, Christopher Raeburn, Claire Barrow, J.W. Anderson, Nasir Mazhar, Peter Pilotto, Phoebe English, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Thomas Tait.
Each designer has created a limited edition unisex sweatshirt and t-shirt, featuring a unique print inspired by the motifs and mood of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In addition, each designer has created two catwalk looks inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The looks were showcased at the extraordinary Star Wars: Fashion Finds The Force presentation 26th November in London, following which they will be available to fans by online auction at www.starwarsfashion.london with all proceeds donated.
J.W. Anderson comments:
“Star Wars is incredibly current, even if it’s in a different world”.
President of Lucasfilm and producer of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kathleen Kennedy said:
“Star Wars has long had an association with British creativity and design, ever since the visionary and Oscar-winning work of English costume designer John Mollo on Star Wars: A New Hope. Star Wars: Fashion Finds The Force will give fans of the iconic Star Wars style a rare chance to see, and own for themselves, unique film-inspired designs from brands on the cutting edge of British fashion innovation.”
