Molly Goddard, named one of NEWGEN's designers to watch in 2014, is a recent graduate of Central St Martins MA Fashion Knit program. She is a West London native and continues to produce all of her clothing in Notting Hill. Her work touches on themes of nostalgia, special occasions, and coming of age. Some of her largest sources of inspiration are Sunday Best and fancy dress, both because of their vast history and inherent stiffness that she likes to turn on their heads. Her techniques of making are both delicate and fragile, and she implements complex techniques such as smocking, hand-pleating, and crocheting to create intricate and visually compelling garments that distinguish her from her peers.
Here Molly is pictured backstage at her SS16 presentation wearing one of her own designs.
