Autumn / Winter 2016 Sadie Clayton | Sadie Clayton since 2014 | Sadie Clayton is a luxury sculptural womenswear label. I graduated from Kingston University in 2013 and launched my brand in September 2014. 2015 saw the start of the label with my collections shown on the catwalks of London and Berlin. I have also created a space for myself in the cross over between fashion and art exhibiting as part of the Nick Waplington / Alexander McQueen: Working Process exhibition at Tate Britain, and more recently at Artisanal Intelligence at AltaRoma. Choosing a presentation at the Café Royal over runway for A/W 2016 I created a “fashion installation” to great acclaim. My work is inspired by headspace and the concept of time. Finding your headspace, the creativity and enhanced benefits of life in this creative mental environment and holding on to Time which is hard to keep, hard to find. I also have a strong personal spirituality which I draw on from the metaphysical properties of stones, and their physiognomy. This is replicated in the texture of my fabrics, and in the voluminous shapes, constraints and twisted proportions of my garments. Copper is my signature fabric, and the stone that brings good luck, and is prevalent within my collections as is my copper sheeting, which has been hammered and heated for a progressive finish. I have always strongly believed in collaborations and feel this is core to the brand. This season I worked with innovative design techniques supported by WG Childs & Sons master tailors for my trousers. Subverted the traditional to reinvent the neck collar with Rose Robson, by capturing bird skins to convey the essence of hands of a clock. Integrated the power of crystals into my show pieces in collaboration with Swarovski, and created a small series of headpieces with Italian milliner Francesco Ballestrazzi to demonstrate time and existence. I continued to explore 3D cut outs to demonstrate headspace with the hidden benefit of allowing a watch to remain visible whilst wearing my pieces, a concept which lead me to create a small range with Nixon watches. At the heart of my work, I am a sculptural designer taking inspiration to draw out more than what meets the eye, and have worked on oversized headpieces with Monique Lee, shoes by Charlene Ong and ceramic brooches designed in collaboration with cult British artist Andrew Logan, and continue my collaboration with United Nude. My clothes have also been photographed by esteemed photographers Mark Lebon and Darren Gerrish worn by Ellie Goulding and Skin.
