Plenty of Knitwear...

27 May 2011

If you haven't read Kristabel's (AKA I Want You To Know) latest blog post, I suggest you do! At her graduate knitwear show last week, I was truly blown away by the talent that she had kept hidden from her blog for so long. I think she only ever blogged about one jumper she made (which was swoonworthy!). So without further ado, let's begin this photo-heavy post...prepare yourselves!

Kristabel's collection is called 'Archive Assembly' and as the name suggests, it was inspired by collections, particularly bookshelves and this is seen in the patterns in the knitwear reflecting the haphazard colour blocking of books. I suppose some might say I'm biased towards Kristabel's collection but I think the pictures can speak for themselves. Her collection was magnificent!

Impressed? I know I was! Aside from Kristabel's collection, I really adored these collections, I'm definitely a sucker for all things brightly coloured and it just so happened that these were the least blurry of my photos. Win.

I have to say that the Nottingham Trent 2011 knitwear grads are a very talented bunch! My digital camera is awful in comparison to all you other bloggers with your high-tech SLRs (I'm sure you could tell which ones were mine in the collage) and so I point you towards Jazmine's Flickr for more wonderful photos of Kristabel's collection and her fellow knitters. Here is the lovely lady herself, looking gorgeous in her red Zara dress (we can be twins now) and her awesome Jeffrey Campbell Alexa wedges.

  5. I love it! This reminds me of my uni days as a fashion marketing student. I probably won't be going to GFW this year - so if you go, please check out the Northumbria stand and let me know what it is like :) xxx

  12. I love the outfit with the plain top, with the blue underneath and then the colourful skirt to finish it off, stunning. I always love these types of posts and I love the background behind the collection. Really interesting, and yes H&M's Water Aid collection is really nice. xx

  26. Absolutely incredible talent with colours and construction! Wow.. That is such an impressive show. She is way too modest. I can see elements of Thakoon and Jean-Paul Gaultier but there's also a really delicate feminine flow throughout the shapes. I want everything.

  29. Wow! Amazing, it's so colorful!

  30. I can see the time and effort gone into her collection. So great that she's been selected for GFW! I much prefer seeing a student's body of work for some reason. Think it's because i'm usually so amazed that one single person has designed and made a collection of garments. x

  40. I am so amazed at the amount of fashion courses available in the UK. a whole knitwear course!
    my best friend specialised in knitwear and she had a knitting machine just like that! I did a few knitwear pieces but outsourced them, I knew nothing about knitting last year!
