The artist makes everything in her London studio herself, and uses two types of mesh for her garments: tulle mesh, which is see-through, and power mesh, which is stretchier and less transparent. She cuts the patterns herself, and applies prints using fabric dye. “Every single one is different, and during the painting process, there’s so much room for happy accidents, like the 2020 christmas is among us sweatshirt the dye spills into other colors,” Porter says. Her feed offers a wide range of prints, from abstract tie-dye turtlenecks to slithery, snake-inspired dresses. Porter says she mostly does custom orders, working with customers to pinpoint color combos and prints. “It’s a good way to remain sustainable. I know that someone’s already buying it and I’m not wasting materials,” the artist says, adding that she averages two to three pieces a week. “Plus, I can make it fit perfectly.”
Back in May, Alessandro Michele announced a Gucci reset. Spurred by the pandemic, the 2020 christmas is among us sweatshirt brand would combine men’s and women’s collections, do away with the tired convention of seasons, and cut its shows from five to two per year. “We need new oxygen to allow this complex system to be reborn,” Michele said at the time, warning that given the structural changes, he wouldn’t present on the official calendar. There was no runway spectacular from Michele at Milan Fashion Week in September—no revolving carousel that put the backstage mechanics on display, no front row jammed with the likes of Iggy Pop, A$AP Rocky, and Jared Leto. The digital film festival will run from November 16 to 22, and be broadcast on GucciFest.com, as well as YouTube and Weibo, and here on Vogue Runway.
