As always Browns is in search of the next generation of young talent. After 5 successful seasons of Browns’ Bfocus collections we are looking to unearth a new artist to collaborate with on our Autumn/Winter 12 collection. We continue to embrace the identity and ethos of Browns by supporting emerging young talent and are looking to find a current student or recent graduate to design a print or an idea that can be translated to a print for our capsule Bfocus collection.
The Bfocus collections has seen Browns collaborate with fashion illustrator Beatrice Boyle fresh out of London College of Fashion, fashion print designer Marie Hill who was discovered at Central St Matins AW09 BA show and Illustrator Ramzi Musa who was studying Fine Art at Leeds at the time of his collaboration on the SS11 collection. This AW11 sees Browns collaborate with Manchester Metropolitan University textile student Abby Watkins and SS12 will see the launch of the collection designed by third year Fashion Design student from the University of Leeds, Laura Denninson.
To be considered for the AW12 collection we require you to submit 4-6 images of your work that could be translated to a print for the collection taking into consideration the edgy ethos of Browns Focus via email to firstname.lastname@example.org . We welcome work from all forms of artists and mediums, please take into consideration that your work will be modified to a print.
The successful candidate’s work will be printed on a capsule collection of T-shirts and dresses (designed in house by Browns). Their name will be featured on the swing tag of all the pieces in the collection and will be included in all press and promotion on the collaboration.
