I launched my womenswear brand Lemra in early 2015. With a sentimental meaning behind the name of my brand, I aspire to show the work of simplicity and that minimalism speaks louder.
On the 9th of January 2016 I decided to Launch my first Fashion show Lemra Runway. I decided to put together a show filled with various representations of art forms, from music, poetry to high fashion. My aim is to provide an opportunity and platform for young people to both network and showcase their talent.
Have a look at last years show:
With up and coming designers presenting pieces from their latest collections, the second show Lemra Runway 17: The collection is due to be a night to remember. Held in my home town Croydon in a modern venue called the TMRW hub, what I wanted was to take my ideas and work back to where it started giving a sense of accomplishment and growth. However also fighting the stigmas and stereotypes of the youth of today. Through hard work and commitment shouting out “WE CAN!”.
Here is what we have in store for you all:
I’m Kreszend Sackey founder of Kreszend, I took a gap year from uni to build my brand & decide to be a part of the Lemra runway for the 2 time around because it helped my name get out there the first time & people loved my first collection but at the time I was still studying & felt I wasn’t ready to build while at uni but this year I took a gap year away from my studies to build my brand, expand on my skills and learn more about textiles and the fashion industry. Can’t wait for everyone to see my full collection at the Lemra runway if you loved my last collection you will worship this one .
Collection: Denim on Denim
My names Daina I think there’s something very rustic and central about denim from the way it hugs your body to the way it protects you in the winter; it can be worn for any occasion, in any season and at any time of the day. There isn’t any limitations of how you can wear it, there’s no rules for what you can make with it nor how to use it; you give denim life because it’s universal. You can’t go wrong with denim because it is endless, timeless and that’s why I’ve chosen this collection for Neoteric Vintage. I got involved with lemra as they give upcoming designers like myself the opportunity to showcase our work.
Hi My name is Patric and Lemra Runway 2016 for me was a great experience as it was my
first time ever showing my creations to such a huge audience.
BÀNKS NOIR is my visual representation of what I believe is High fashion. This year I decided to work outside my comfort zone, creating garments with fabrics that I have never even considered myself touching. I Believe that Lemra runways is a wonderful opportunity for upcoming designers to start build an audience.
I am Cassia and my collection is inspired by english country traditional outdoor activity and vintage utility vests. Taking the silhouettes and style, infusing it with sportswear details. This is an attempt to develop a unisex collection creating an advance and innovative wear for my consumer. Why i want to get involved? I get a chance to meet so many new people from various cultures and with different perspectives. It also offers a development and connections with others in my field and enhance your business and those people know other people, so developing relationships with them could lead to business.
