Margot Bowman for River Island
Multi media artist, Margot Bowman, has joined high street retailer River Island to produce both a collection and a showcase which will launch at the London Fashion Week Fashion’s Film event this February.
River Island, founded in 1948, is a print heavy high street fashion brand. By collaborating with Margot Bowman they are hoping to bring both the brand’s and the artist’s energy to life through a vibrant showcase incorporating many different techniques and medias. River Island has previously worked with designers and artists such as Zoe Jordan, Sibling, Eudon Choi and Dominic Jones.
Bowman describes herself as a ‘direct, colour-obsessed, hybrid, rebellious, empathetic, optimistic & curious’ person who is ‘interested in identity, technology and subculture’ hence, proves to be an intresting choice for this brand to collaborate with. The collection is an eight piece edit and will be launching from February the 19th 2017. Prices will range between £25-£65. Bowman and River Island have released some beautiful sketches getting us excited for what is yet to come.
Below are a few of the sketches from the upcoming collection:
