Collaboration with design duo Talbot Runhof for their A/W 10 showcase at Paris Fashion Week. The collection is based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, "The Red Shoes". A fable of relentless obsession, paralyzing danger and unyielding seduction. Plastic accessories designed and made by Amy Thompson, including leg, chest and neck pieces as well as gloves and sculptural shoulder armour.
About the Designer
Amy is based in United Kingdom. She studied at DeMontfort University.
Amy Thompson is a concept led designer who seeks to explore the unknown, achieve the unexpected, challenge the existing and create the extraordinary. Both her obsessive research and creative experimentation direct and shape each piece she designs, often using sculptural methods to exaggerate and manipulate silhouette and scale in order to discover the overall effect desired. Innovation in her work is also achieved by the fusion of contemporary and traditional techniques, the cross over into non-fashion disciplines and use of unconventional materials. In addition, quirky printed textiles play an important part in her designs and bring a fresh and distinctive individuality to her work.
