ISOLATED HEROES AT THE DRESSING UP BOX!
As well as stocking fabulous vintage pieces the Dressing Up Box is also setting the backbone for enhancing the creativity within the fashion industry by stocking new designers and giving them a platform to stand on. There is alot of creativity and many talented designers coming out of the Dundee area and without any current platform to exhibit their work this is a much needed aspect for local boutiques.
The Dressing Up Box is proud to now be stocking the work of Local designer Samantha McEwen.
Samanthas Work for GFW River Island 2010
Isolated Heroes is the ready to wear label from the up and coming undergraduate designer Samantha McEwen. Samantha recently finished her third year achieving her BA in fashion design for Industry at the prestigious Heriot Watt University School of Textile and Design.
Some of her previous work includes a diffusion range for River Island, a knitwear collection entitled "Geeks and Freaks", a sportswear collaboration within the Pentland Group and her most recent Bachelor of Arts third year collection, "LOVE YOUR BONES". All of which have received much critical acclaim and praise.
Her ready to wear range includes many of the key sought after pieces from her Bachelor of Arts collection.
The Dressing Up Box is Currently the only stockist to display these exclusive one off pieces and offers the opportunity for people to come in and speak to the designer herself, look through the design books and have personal one on one commissions made from inside the store.
Remember all the designers garments are complete one offs! She will not make the same design twice unless comissioned to do so. Therefore it is EXTREMELY important to snap these up while you can!
For more of Samantha’s Work do not hesitate to look on her blog
