Draw in Light is a brand that hails from London. They are a silk screen printing design label and I was first introduced to them by the Young British Designers. Young British Designers represent a beautiful variety of talented designers, such as PAPER London, Eudon Choi, J.W. Anderson and Sophie Hulme, all based in the UK. It’s a carefully curated collection of fresh, new, creative work that is the creme de la creme of emerging British talent.
I am totally in love with my silk dress from Draw in Light. At £275 it’s a little pricey yes, but the beauty of these Draw in Light garments lies not only in the aesthetics and the feel but also because each piece is totally unique. Using free-hand silk printing techniques, a lot of love and time is spent making these garments look this beautiful, and this individual.
They specialise in elegant, minimal, raw yet understated shapes for women. And they have totally captured these elements within this design.
You may notice the creases but these were delivered to me over in Sydney, and therefore the amount of travelling warranted a few lines. I prefer the look of it like that – I’m not overly smart and prefer my looks to be a little relaxed/grungy. After all, each wearer of the piece is individual, just like the dress itself.
I love the feel of the dress, silk printed on the front, graduating from black to a champagne colour, and plain black cotton t-shirt material on the back. Perfect with strappy heels, chunky boots and worn over skinny jeans. Above was how I chose to wear it on a night out in Sydney harbour.
