New Talent: Amy Louise Penny | FW17
University: Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton), UK
Jewelry: Mimikra, Poland
One of our great #NewTalent at Feeric Fashion Week, the greatest fashion week in Eastern Europe was Amy Penny, a contemporary fashion designer graduating from Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton). Her work blends a unique range of inspirations ranging through sportswear, evening wear, period clothing and contemporary style to encompass a unique and modern edge.
In each of her projects, Amy Penny uses strong themes, often revolving around issues of feminism, and aims to bring a sense of empowerment to the wearer. Amy Penny’s bold, red, graduate collection entitled ‘I Never Looked Good In Red…’ was inspired by the novel The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
Using this influence and attempting to combine it with a contemporary feel, this collection aims to highlight issues of feminism whilst remaining wearable and empowering to the wearer.
