Lottie Lawrence

I'm Lottie, a Fashion Textiles graduate with a specialism in knitwear and menswear. My work is heavily influenced by the intuitive and emotional responses of myself and the people around me and focuses on exploring the tactile elements of my research through knit sampling. I find traditional menswear and the idea of soft masculinity a great source of inspiration when exploring the subversion of classic knitwear - often using knitted fabrics to create a soft tailored silhouette. My aim is to create garments that are a vessel for expression, that is an ode to craftsmanship and that will be

worn not wasted.
