DESIGNER FOCUS / ONE FELL SWOOP


S2 has just received our first delivery of One Fell Swoop’s Summer 15 Collection.

We recently had the opportunity to chat with One Fell Swoop’s designers Nina and Dan to find out a little that will excite the S2 customer who is waiting with anticipation…

What is the direction you have taken for this season

We have taken a ‘Spring Clean’ direction this season - everything gets a bit much in life and we wanted to shake it off. The colours are uplifting and this collection all started with a floral print…this silk is just divine!

Your garments always have a unique drape/construction, is this the first step in the design process or does it start with the fabric

Is it hard to find the fabric that speaks to you both? Really we don't know! Sometimes it's cloth that inspires us, other times it is working on the form and draping. We feel the idea of romance is always present in how we design. A day, a person or feeling, comfort and love are what we always want for ourselves and our pieces. We are two separate individuals who collaborate to form OFS and so too our fabrics and drape fuse to become one.

S2 caters for such a wide verity of ladies, how do you ensure that your cuts and designs work for every shape

Unfortunately, we can't ensure anything; however, we endeavour to offer our ideas to everyone with no prejudice.

OFS began with 2 kids who had a dream…and in our minds we imagined one to not just buy a dress, but enter a family!
