SilkFred Who?

SilkFred is an online store acting as the back drop for exciting, up and coming luxury designers.  Working along side the designers, SilkFred provides materials and tools to kick start new careers.  SilkFred acts as a business aid; exposing designers and their work, projecting a brands aesthetic to an audience of students, creatives and consumers looking for groundbreaking, stylish new pieces.  With an ever expanding site, it really is one of the best places to find some fresh talent!!

A few of my favourite SilkFred designers include –

Daniel Foster: Her structrued, edgy, quirky bags remind me of Sophie Hulme and I want one! The caged studded satchel is my fave!

Danielle Foster – ‘Captivity’ SS12

Christopher Waller:  Using luxurious fabrics in contrasting textures, Waller creates chic clothing with a sophisticated sexy aesthetic.  I particularly enjoy the sport luxe ‘Loose Cannon Trouser’ and ‘Vanessa Dress’!

ANTAGONISTE – With print stalking 99% of S/S12 catwalks; it’s no wonder the quirky scarves from this digital print specialist have become a firm favourite on SilkFred.  The mirrored patterns in romantic colours create the perfect accessory for S/S12 and seasons to come.
