Using abundant textures and patterns, Lu Flux’s garments greet onlookers with a sense of creativity and pleasure. Humour is combined with beauty to conjure whimsical warmth that fills the wearer with a wonderful silliness.
Paying meticulous attention to the methods and materials that create each garment Lu Flux strives to demonstrate the possibility of creating ethical clothing without compromising beauty.
After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2006, Lu Flux went to work as a design assistant for Bernhard Willhelm in his Paris studio. On returning to London Lu started her own label which debuted at London Fashion Week in February 2009 at Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s “Ones to Watch” show. Since then Lu has been showing as part of Estethica in Somerset House and for Spring Summer 2011 unveiled her new collection “Over The Hills and Far Away” as a presentation at The Chapel of St Barnabus in Soho.
In September 2010 Lu Flux was presented with the Innovation Award at London Fashion Week in conjunction with Estethica and the Ethical Fashion Forum. This award acknowledges inventive and exciting design in the world of ethical fashion.
The most recent collection for Spring Summer 2011 “Over the Hills and Far Away” has been showcased in London, Paris, Amsterdam and Tokyo Fashion Weeks. The collection was inspired by clean-cut landscapes and Gustav Klimt’s women. The bold blues, yellows and greens emulate the colours of an English country garden in Spring. Hoards of ribbon and a personalized toile de jouy by illustrator Neil O’Driscoll feature alongside Lu Flux’s signature patchworks composed from salvaged, sustainable and organic fabrics. This is the second season that Lu Flux has worked alongside Devon based company Green Shoes to create a series of ethical footwear that compliment and complete the collection.
“The CSF business support programme has re-affirmed my belief that my business can be both ethical and successful as a sustainable design practise.”
