Amy Thomson AW18 at London Fashion Week

Amy Thomson launches her playful AW18 collection 'Chasin' Dreams', inspired by youthful aspirations.
I wanna be a baker

Each look in the collection presents a character based on a profession seen from a child's perspective. Thomson poses the question - what does a Princess, Baker and Hairdresser look like through a child's unaffected eyes? How are these career paths defined in the mind of a child without any preconceptions?

 From this conceptual beginning, Amy has created eight complete looks that embody a magical aesthetic, bringing to life the idea of focusing on your dreams.

 Thomson creates this magical feel with her larger-than-life hand rendered drawings that hold a distinctive and charming naivety, ensuring no two garments are the same.
