"It's the simple things in life that count"
Within the hustle and bustle of modern times individuals try so desperately hard to be individual, blind to the reality that it's the ones who don't who stand out. Charlotte Taylor builds her creations around such an ethos. The effortless. The endearing. The mysterious. The strong.
Charlotte's collections are tailored to all aspects of everyday life, laid bare ready to be grasped by the individual and transformed into their own story. Strong tailoring, bold silhouettes and sculptured shapes provide canvases for dashes of colour, textures and prints. Charlotte's vision subtly emphasises the female form, juxtaposing androgynous tones with effortless elegance.
A Lancashire lass, Charlotte moved to London straight from school to pursue her dream of becoming a clothes designer. Five years later she graduated from Central Saint Martin's and was selected to be a part of its prestigious press show. Along the way Charlotte assisted numerous designers including Marcus Constable and at fashion houses including Frost French. Upon graduation Charlotte was snapped up by Luella, subsequently leaving in June 2009 to set up her new venture under her own name.
Isle of Wight based Charlotte has really made her presence felt by virtue of her standout designs and colours, her engaging blog which charts her endeavours to launch, develop and sustain her business and her sheer determination and talent.
For SS13 Charlotte Taylor brings us "Eastern Promise".
Charlotte's trip to India was the inspiration behind her SS13 collection. The richness of colour, the culture, the textures are all to be experienced in the vibrant new designs on display. Look closer to see the scared cows, the floor tiles, the Taj Mahal itself and the richness of all life there.
And witness once more the return of Charlotte's iconic penguin, albeit with its own Eastern take.
