LFW Interview: Corrie Nielsen

Since winning the Fashion Fringe competition in 2010, Corrie Nielsen has moved from strength to strength cementing her as one of the shows to see at London Fashion Week. Now actually designer within Somerset House, today Nielsen presented a collection of strong, romantically inspired, tartan-fuelled Scottish heritage. To make this abundantly clear, the models even had tartan transferred onto their faces. In a hectic backstage, whilst getting used – and perhaps slightly overwhelmed- to her explosion on the fashion scene, we managed to grab a few words with the lady herself.

Planet Notion: Congratulations on a great show! We had the modern Scottish romantic from you this season, with the inspiration from your heritage, was this an important element for you?

Corrie Nielsen: It was, it was. It meant the show held a real sentimental value. I also did a lot of research around my Scottish heritage.

PN: And was this Celtic heritage something new to you?

CN: Yes it was something I found out recently, it was through the research that I found out so much about my great great great grandfather’s life, within Medieval English and Scottish manners of dress, but added my own twist to it.

PN: Yes, it came across as the modern version of it. Structure is a trademark of yours, how do you feel it came across in this collection?

CN: I think it was very successful. Yeah, I do my best to make it shine through the collection alongside the more obvious influences. and I really put my heart into it.

PN: Is evolution throughout your collections important for you, do you like to evolve from one collection to the next or start a new slate?

CN: No, I  like to change it. For example the next collection is really different to this one , but I can’t tell you how!
