Placement at On|Off London & Paris Fashion Week.

I have been selected as an intern for Doll where I will be working at On/Off London Fashion Week & Paris Fashion Week.

Im incredibly excited to be part of Fashion week in both of these AMAZING cities.
This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity - an opportunity of being able to network with Fashionistas from across the globe.

On|Off has a strong international reputation of showcasing 'design over hype' with a track record of discovering and nurturing new talent including Peter Pilotto, Gareth Pugh, Louise Gray, Yang Du, Mark Fast, Aminaka Wilmont and Hannah Marshall to name a few.

I first became involved with On|Off during a "Guest at Grays" Guest Lecture from Lee Lapthorndirector of On|Off PFW and LFW, Fashion consultant, Print designer & external examiner printed textiles St Martins. 
He talked of how his career as a textiles designer had influenced his involvement within Fashion week and had resulted into the creation of On|Off which I felt deeply interested in.

There is going to be some truly inspiring designers showcasing their work at On|Off and I'm so excited to see them in action. To read about and see some of the designers who have shown at On|Off click here.

Below is a clip of On|Off Paris - Can you spot Vivienne Westwood and some of the other well known names in Fashion?
