News From The Unknown
Laviate is founded by the twin designers Eirini and Dimitra. Both, after graduating with a BSc in Bimolecular and Genetic Science, moved to London to study Fashion and Arts at Central Saint Martins. They were both successfully accepted at the BA Fashion Design with Print and Knitwear. Their designs are utterly lush. A beautiful floral motif aligns nicely gingham and tartan.
The twins’ work was awarded with the ONES TO WATCH by Fashion Scout London and their SS19 catwalk was presented during London Fashion Week at Freemason's Hall. They gained industry experience at Mary Katrantzou in heavy embroidery and at Yorgos Eleftheriades in tailoring. These skills along with their strong interest in hand drawn digital print and knit, are a strong characteristic of their own work. Bold silhouettes, romanticism, as well as atmospheric designs are what can describe their creations in a simple manner.
