A panel of industry experts including Lisa Bryne, Design Director at Warehouse, and Caroline Rush, the Chief Executive at the BFC, chose this year`s winner Philli Wood whose final collection, which was showcased at the University of Westminster Graduate show in May 2013, presented exceptional ability, innovation and relevance to the current and future profile of the Warehouse brand.

Philli got to experience the full journey from the initial design process, through production, then finally to the campaign creation and PR launch making the six month placement with Warehouse an exciting start to the designer`s career.

Philli Commented:

`The collection was initially inspired by American Indian intuits. I experimented with large oversized silhouettes and chunky knitwear. I printed images of cable knits onto exaggerated shapes to give the illusion of knitwear. The bright, clashing colour palette was inspired by installation artist Dan Flavin who uses florescent strip lights.”

Comprised of 12 pieces the capsule range is a re-imagining of Philli`s graduate collection, fusing modern styles with neon hues which are always a hit come summer. The pieces have also been given an abstract feel, which is down to the statement cable print, varying in scale depending on the item to give the illusion of knitwear.

Highlights of the sports-infused collection includes an oversized parka with key features such as welt pockets, drawstrings and orange linings plus the textured bomber jacket (a favourite of mine from the collection!) which is the perfect season cover-up. Other sporty inspired garments that will make ideal additions to your wardrobe are the lightweight woven jogging pants and a rucksack which is finished with a jumbo drawstring top for added style impact.
