Designer-to-know: Lowri Edwards, the new British talent arriving at Warehouse
Winner of the Warehouse Design Competition 2015, shop budding talent Lowri Edwards' capsule collection for the high street label by the end of the month

An initiative launched by the British Fashion Council's Colleges Council in tandem with the fast fashion label, the Warehouse Design Competition awards fresh fashion design graduates a stepping stone to building their careers. Each year, the victor is gifted the opportunity to experience and contribute to the workings of the high street brand for a period of six months, creating a capsule collection to be stocked and sold by Warehouse come the end of the journey.  

De Monfort University fashion design graduate, Lowri Edwards, will soon be releasing her collection after cutting her teeth at the brand. Stitching up a quintessentially English offering of structured lines and broderie anglaise, get to know the young designer's voice through the atypical pieces of her edit: The quilted duvet-like jackets and minimalistic patchwork blouses. Edwards expertly transformed the markers of classic Brit interiors into a sleek, feminine line of clothing. Our favourite piece from the capsule? The pair of jeans with raw, uneven hems — paired with a crisp white oxford shirt for maximum effect of contrast. 

Lowri Edwards for Warehouse will be available at the Warehouse boutique located at Ion Orchard from 24 March.
