Designer Story : Sophie HulmeThursday, March 20, 2014
Sophie Hlume 29 years old, graduated from London Kingston university in 2007 with an BA in fashion design - first class honor and she started making her fashion ever since
but the hit came in London Fashion Week back in September 2012
she arrived at the shows carrying a handsome black boxy leather tote in the crook of her arm (in the photo below). There were no labels, no ‘look at me’ styling – just some subtle but distinctive gold plates around the handle. The bag was both chic and practical – a killer combination and everyone wanted one. Within two weeks, it had sold out everywhere, worldwide.
Two months later, Sophie Hulme was accepting the Emerging Talent – Accessories award at the British Fashion Awards.
Today, Hulme’s brand of ready-to-wear, jewellery, accessories and, of course, bags, is a fully fledged luxury label, complete with waiting lists and designer collaborations.
Hulme’s designs might be timeless, modern classics, they are also playful.
