LFW Interview: Joseph Turvey – OTW

Upon discovering after the show that young designer Joseph Turvey had pretty much just graduated before he found himself showing at London Fashion Week, PN was quite literally gobsmacked. It was a slick show, presenting what was a very exciting collection. Not one to shy away from colour, Turvey sent trippy neon pinks and oranges, pastel yellows and bold blacks down the catwalk. Florals, illustrations and rave caps also made their way up and down the runway, in what we can only describe as a ‘the party has arrived’ collection. Safe to say, we would be more than happy to start a party with Mr. Joseph Turvey.

Planet Notion: How did you feel when you found out you had been picked for the ‘Ones To Watch?’

Joseph Turvey: It was insane! I got the call when I was in a pub with all my friends and I had to get my collection sent straight away, and had to run like 10 times from the pub to the uni to get my collection sent over to them. So it was insane, but really good at the same time.

PN: So this was your debut at Fashion Week, how have you found the whole experience?

JT: It’s been insane, it’s crazy backstage. It went so fast, but it was really good.

PN: So tell us about the collection? Where did your main inspiration come from?

JT: It kind of took inspiration from ‘Grey Gardens’ which is a documentary about two amazing, crazy women who wore crazy clothes they just found around the house and they just styled them together. Oh and they were always talking about their ‘Le Grand’ husband and I wanted to try and create my Le Grand husband.

PN: Well he looked wonderful!

JT: Thank you!

PN: So after this, what’s next?

JT: Oh god knows! I just take it as it comes, if nothing comes fine, if it does good. So, yeah, wait and see!
