Amy Thomson presented her AW18 collection to crowds during LFW at Fashion Scout, within the presentation studio.
Eponymous label Amy Thomson launched her playful AW18 collection ‘Chasin’ Dreams’, inspired by youthful aspirations. Each look in the collection presents a character based on a profession seen from a child’s perspective. Thomson poses the question – what does a Princess, Baker and Hairdresser look like through a child’s unaffected eyes? How are these career paths defined in the mind of a child without any preconceptions?
From this conceptual beginning, Amy has created eight complete looks that embody a magical aesthetic, bringing to life the idea of focusing on your dreams. Thomson creates this magical feel with her larger-than-life hand-rendered drawings that hold a distinctive and charming naivety, ensuring no two garments are the same. With dreamlike prints, motifs and illustrations referencing each character appear throughout the narrative of the collection.
