DESIGNER NAME: Jane Frances
BACKGROUND: Jane is from Sydney, Australia and her business is based in London.
TRADEMARK PIECE: “The floating heel: natural wood, sliced with sharp Plexiglas.”
SIGNATURES: “The meeting of natural and urban worlds, translated through a combination of artisanal and contemporary design.”
WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVMENT? “It is still to come.”
THE COLLECTION: “I was inspired by the Californian summer, where arid beauty meets an urban oasis. I was particularly drawn to California's desolate environment, combining this with the surrounding urban architecture and sprawling metropolis. Spring/summer 2015 features strong, raw structures, along with contemporary architectural details and pops of festive summer colours.”
IF YOU COULD DRESS ANYONE, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY? “Jessica Hart. She’s a natural beauty, with a strong sense of style and an urban elegance.”
