Nicolas Oakwell at The Penthouse

By Harriet Hawksworth 17 August 2012

Couture designer Nicholas Oakwell is showcasing his new season collection in The Penthouse, the home of Harrods’ personal shopping service BY APPOINTMENT.

The designer’s Autumn/Winter 2012 collection is inspired by the lush decadence of 1970s New York and explores the relationship between 1940s and 1970s style. Celebrating androgynous styling and intricate couture techniques, it employs high quality fabrics to create a sophisticated mood that is both modern and elegant.

Credited with putting British couture back in the fashion spotlight, Nicholas Oakwell graduated from the Epsom School of Art and Design, beginning his career as a milliner, before building a reputation for his exquisite craftsmanship working alongside such prestigious brands as Dior and Katherine Hamnett.
