Charlotte Helyar is a Glasgow-born, London-based Fashion and Textiles Designer. Charlotte gained BA (Hons) in Textiles from Edinburgh College of Art in 2010 before completing an MA in Fashion at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, specialising in Textiles. Her graduate collection for Autumn/Winter 2012 was showcased as part of the CSM MA Show at London Fashion Week.
Specialising in printed textiles, her work is an homage to the analogue, drawing inspiration from the postmodernist movement, 80's album artworks, early riot grrrl fanzines and the DIY aesthetic that comes from them. Her MA collection featured layered garments made of crisp, white cottons upon which 17th century French portraits were hand screen-printed using a traditional four-colour separation process.
