We were recently invited to designer Liz Black’s presentation of her new collection in Central London. Her latest line goes under the persuasive name of Wear Me, and upon seeing her new designs, we agreed that no encouragement was needed to persuade us to snap up some of the pieces for ourselves.
Liz Black is a Central Saint Martins College graduate who has worked with several leading designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, and even counts Lady Gaga amongst her fans. Her own label aims to create wearable statement pieces with an element of timeless appeal, and her Fall 2013 range has been influenced by Alice in Wonderland. To channel that Wonderland feeling, Liz has opted for block colours and luxurious fabric in sleek silhouettes and unexpected forms. Innocent Alice is represented in chiffons and silks as the more exuberant characters are represented in the louder and more structured pieces.
