Jewellery brand will feature as part of Corrie Nielsen presentation.
Jewellery brand Tresor Paris will grace the catwalks of London Fashion Week as part of Corrie Nielsen’s AW12 presentation.
Corrie Nielsen first wowed Fashion Week audiences in 2010, when she won the Fashion Fringe award judged by John Galliano and Colin McDowell.
The Florida-born designer studied at Central Saint Martins as a mature student before being awarded a job with Vivienne Westwood.
The Autumn Winter 2012 catwalk show, which will feature Tresor Paris, was inspired by a historic family connection to Scotland. “My Scottish great, great, great grandfather John S. Burns emigrated from Scotland to the United,” she explained to the London Fashion Week web site. “I’m also inspired by Scottish clans that produced unique hand-woven tartans representing a particular family name, as well as medieval English and Scottish forms of dress and lifestyle.”
Tresor Paris will showcase new additions to its Neptune and Saturn ranges with the Corrie Nielsen collection.
The catwalk show, which takes place at London’s Somerset House on February 17, will also mark the beginning of a deeper collaboration, which will see Corrie designing a new collection of bracelets and accessories.
