Having already showcased their creations for the AW10/11 season, designers have given fashionistas everywhere a chance to delight in the inevitable oncoming of shorter days and [much] cooler nights.
An exceptional example of the latest fall and winter wear, Birmingham based designer Jacob Kimmie is one of several promising talents to have shown his ready-to-wear collection with Vauxhall Fashion Scout – a dream come true for new and emerging designers. Featuring a beautifully sculpted collection of black and white statement pieces, his line captures the essence of the 21st century woman. Not just bold, but strong and unapologetically steadfast on her journey to success. Whilst some pieces envisage a little more than meets the eye, Jacob Kimmie is still definitely easy to appreciate.
Having dressed the likes of Skins star Kaya Scodelario and BBC Material Girl’s leading lady Lenora Crichlow (some of Jacob’s designs can be seen in the show!), the Jacob Kimmie label embodies a fashion forward modern identity, as opposed to re-creating carbon copies of the tried and tested.
With all this in mind, Jacob Kimmie is, indeed, one to watch. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for his pieces in the up-and-coming ad campaign for Absolut Vodka!
