This years London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 I got the honour of working alongside knitwear designer Alice Ashby and her new and upcoming brand – Blake Ldn
Heading from London’s Central St Martins, Alice Ashby has previously worked as an assistant knitwear designer at Rag & Bone in New York. she then went on to co-found luxury knitwear label The North Circular two years ago. combining a traditional British craft alongside a modern day vision she launched Blake Ldn in September 2012.
Blake’s mission is to create contemporary knitwear that offers a more conscious alternative. With a focus on sound sourcing and manufacturing they only collaborate with like-minded people celebrating the provenance of each piece.
They source yarns from some of the oldest and highest quality yarn suppliers from around the world. The designers attend Pitti Filati in Florence twice a year to meet with these suppliers who are showcasing their next seasons yarn.
Their emphasis is on craftsmanship and quality. Each piece of knitwear is constructed using the finest materials, the most skilled craftsman and local British manufacturers. Follow the journey from design to completion, illustrating the craft and refinement behind every piece.
As a stamp of quality each Blake piece comes as an Edition. A note and reminder that we have delivered our promise on luxury and quality.
