Talented former Fashion student Eden Loweth has featured in another issue of Vogue magazine as one of the UKs leading young designers.
For Barbie’s 60th anniversary Vogue invited six leading young designers, including our very own Eden, to dress the iconic doll with their signature style.
Within the September issue Eden and co-founder of his label Tom Barratt, Art School explained the inspiration behind their designs.
“Art School really began with the idea of provoking a cultural shift through the process of design,” explain its founders, Eden Loweth & Tom Barratt. “We want to create a movement.” Dedicated to promoting and supporting the queer community the two designers are embedded within, theirs is a brand that proudly celebrates non-binary bodies: tailoring on the bias to accommodate transitioning shapes (their “non-binary Barbie” offers a perfect example of their take on figure-skimming glamour), or allowing for variable button placements depending on your gender. But “we have realised there is a correlation between our designs and any person’s body – because everyone’s size and shape fluctuates over the course of their life,’’ they continue. “Art School is about making clothes that are really tolerant, that will stand with someone throughout their life, and as they evolve as in their own identity.”
