Original Sketches By Stephanie Potts
Stephanie’s first collection reflects the notion of British eccentricity and the idea of escapism through clothing. Stephanie wanted to create a heritage inspired collection which had a sense of ‘grown up playfulness’ she studied the book ‘Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland’ the quirkiness of the story and characters inspired Potts to create garments that were purposely imperfect for example back fastenings and elongated shapes. The colours and fabrics used in the collection have a ‘Vintage British Countryside’ feel.
Stephanie describes her debut as ‘Heritage meets controlled chaos’
