Graduate Fashion Week 2013: Stuart Peters Visionary Knitwear Award

Thea Sanders, Nottingham Trent University

Described by judge Adam Jones, former knitwear designer at Dior and Kenzo, as a combination of “Chloe meets Marni”, Thea Sanders’ highly technical collection was a worthy winner of GFW’s top knit prize. Deftly mixing and matching kitschy 1970s colours, swirling retro shapes and geometric patterns, her tapestry-style dresses, cropped cardigans and textured jumpers had a prim secretary vibe. Although appearing simple, each piece was highly technical and displayed numerous knitting skills, with her dimensional stitches and wonderful fluffy textures all perfectly executed. The collection pushed boundaries but had a strong commercial element and wearability.
