Victim Fashion Street



One of my favourite parts of the exhibition at Somerset House is always the Esthetica section, which showcases designers who work in sustainable, fairly traded and ethical ways. Which is where I found Victim Fashion Street who were also on the front cover of Esthetica Magazine.



Victim was started in 2000 on Fashion Street, just off brick lane and has come a long way in the 12 years, having created for the Topshop Boutique.


Victim produce frilly, girlish one off pieces, created using vintage fabrics, laces and scarfs.




I really like on this dress the way that the majority of the dress was white vintage lace with a Victorian sort of feel with brightly coloured, modern; frills Suffolk puffs and balls.




Contrasting stitching gives a punky and haphazard feel stopping the dresses from being too girly.



 A bunting skirt with a touch of a panto dame's bloomers.





I like that the stitching is a bit wobbly and the dress has a thrown together sort of vibe as opposed to a precious one.



"Victim Fashion Street is going through a period of rejuvenation, thanks to a reinvigorated designer with an even greater sense of commitment to the spirit of localism, eco-fashion, sustainability and upcycling through creativity."
