“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
I couldn’t have chosen a better description of Scottish Designer Nicci.n’s latest Spring/summer collection, all shot in Edinburgh city itself, the imaginative, dark, sheltered and sexy shoot was such a whirlwind of creativity, I was so happy to be part of the amazing project as well as the team. Which made me even more delighted to be able to share with you her sneak peak photos to her shoot!
Emerging Scottish fashion label, nicci.n. are thrilled to announce the new Spring/Summer 14 collection, Florabundance. Nicci.n. is a unique and edgy womenswear label focusing on differentiation with an eye for printing techniques such as hand-painting and digital print.
‘Florabundance’ is the highly anticipated Spring/Summer 14 collection by nicci.n. The collection is inspired by the floral trend where silhouettes are ruffled and flared mixed with fabric manipulation and hand-dye techniques. Illustrated floral drawings are present which emphasise the Florabundance theme and an exciting colour palette of Lilac, Navy, Cream and Wine make the collection unique and original. Funky pieces such as leatherette cropped leggings, navy snakeprint midi-length dresses and hand-dyed pencil skirts own the collection which is all designed and made in Scotland.
The collection is available from the newly launched e-commerce website, www.niccin.com and prices range from between £35-£140
“Incorporating artistic features such as hand-dyeing and illustrative drawings gives the collection a real hand-made element. This makes the collection very distinctive and eye catching.” -Designer/Director – Nicola A Gardner
