Lauren McCalmont creates graffiti inspired dresses for ASOS

ASOS continue to expand their offerings, seeming to have recognised a demand in the market for mid-range items that balance quality with price point. Most recenty they launched the feminine frock-laden range ASOS Salon – now comes the latest from ASOS Black: a collection designed in collaboration with Central Saint Martins MA graduate Lauren McCalmont.

McCalmont’s capsule of dresses and shoes take their cues from backalley graffiti and visual arts alike. “My signature is multi-layered prints, mixing graphic shapes with handwritten and painted elements,” says McCalmont. “The references were ‘70s graphic design and graffiti.”

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
