LOIS SLEIGHTHOLME

FASHION BA (HONS)

Vibrant and full of sparkle is the theme for Lois Sleightholme’s work – who admits to always being drawn to colour, pattern and texture when starting a design project. This stems from being a child and seeing her grandma dress in amazing outfits before going dancing.

The womenswear designer from South Shields, has created a collection combining two inspirations; the first being the work of Irish photojournalist and artist Richard Mosse, titled The Enclave – an infrared military film journeying through eastern Congo's humanitarian disaster. Military and colourful details feature within the collection, mixed with aspects from her beloved grandma’s style. The result includes intricate sunray pleats on skirts, with jazzy sequin details in camouflage shapes.

Her collection derives from a fictional narrative based in the year 4040, where the planet is slowly becoming colder due to the Big Freeze, and central heating is being stolen and sold illegally by youthful yobs.

During her time studying on the fashion design course, Lois completed a three-month placement in the atelier department at Mary Katrantzou, and a seven-week placement assisting in the studio at Holly Fulton. She was also one of 10 to be shortlisted for a three-month internship in San Francisco with Old Navy.
