DESIGNER NAME: Liora Lassalle
BACKGROUND: Born in Kent, Liora Lassalle has always moved around a lot, having lived in Brighton, Los Angeles, East Sussex and Canada. Totnes in Devon is where she stayed the longest before finally emigrating to the capital, London. "I think my nomadic lifestyle has added to the mixed up styling of my work. I studied Fashion and Print at Central Saint Martins. I did work experience with Jeremy Scott, Dr. Noki, and John Galliano."
SIGNATURES: "Short skirts, contrasting features and lots of decoration!"
TRADEMARK PIECE: "Ripped, stripped, stripes of up-cycled denims."
IDEAL CLIENT: "Anyone who wants to wear my clothes is my ideal client. They'd probably be fun, young hearted and not afraid to glow."
THE COLLECTION: “AW13 brings together 18th century romanticism with modern day workman wear -contrasting hi-visibility and pearls!”
CULTURAL INFLUENCES: "I get inspiration from travelling, seeing and being in unusual places and different cultures."
PLANS FOR 2013: "Brazil is first on my to-do list! Then, watch this space."
