Laura Ironside is a new Scottish designer creating bespoke silk pieces, made-to-order in London.
Ironside is dedicated to slow, traditional methods of production. She uses French-dyed chiffon silk, which is then hand draped and stitched to form each luxury piece. Simplicity and reduced consumption are key to the designer, she shuns the use of extra components, instead each style is made in a single fabric with minimal fastenings. The development process itself follows this line of sensitivity, with each item being designed on the body, the aim being to fit items to flatter and celebrate the female form.
The result is a collection of thoughtful pieces, that take 1930s inspiration but have been elevated to suit today.
