Róisín Murphy has always been one of the most covetable human hangers upon which fashion graduates showcase their wares. Her effortless cool swagger, as evidenced in April in the Olympia and this month at Body & Soul, brings a spotlight and natural confidence to couture. Her latest find is Licong Gong, a student of MA Fashion Design (Menswear) at the London College of Fashion.
“She found me through Instagram – I posted my final collection on my personal social account and she contacted me and expressed her willingness to cooperate with me,” says Gong.
Espacées, his graduate show is based on the imaging principle of Halftone, “a reprographic technique that simulates continuous-tone imagery through the use of shapes to form printed patterns and silhouettes. In addition, from the perspective of clothing, the change of distance of the shapes forms two printing effects (dots superimposed printing and color block printing).”
Hot on Róisín’s heels have been Burna Boy who was wearing his colour popping threads at the Met Gala and Dan Stevens at the premier of Gaslit.
