FLEUR TWYMAN

FASHION BA (HONS)

Skateboarding culture is at the heart of Fleur Twyman’s collection, who has a love for the sport and its associated film, photography and brands, as well as music and album graphics. Originally from Ashford, in Kent, Fleur is particularly interested in oversized silhouettes and likes to work with wide and A-Line shapes.

For her collection, she has looked at how menswear can influence women in the way they dress and style outfits, with the skate brand scene being heavily male dominated. The prints, colours, shapes, concept and mood of the collection have been heavily influenced by this as well as the brash and slightly crude aspects associated with the culture.

She has a keen interest in clothing that fits more than one size – wanting her pieces to be accessible for more people, in particular women, and not limited to conventional sizing.

Fleur completed a placement at Griffin Studio, in Devon, during her studies.
