Lucasfilm unveils a special British fashion initiative to celebrate the renewal of one of contemporary culture’s most enduring creative influences; Star Wars.
Fashion Innovation Agency partnered 10 London-based designers with Lucasfilm and Disney to create original Star Wars: The Force Awakens inspired garments. The looks were showcased at the extraordinary Star Wars: Fashion Finds The Force presentation 26th November in London at the Old Selfridges Hotel and sold in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
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.
In addition each designer created a limited edition unisex sweatshirt and t-shirt, featuring a unique print inspired by the motifs and mood of Star Wars.
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.”
