Recently featured in Vogue Italia, February edition, Mungo Gurney of London, shares his inspiration on his new collection, as an up and coming 'well-known', women's wear designer. Gurney discovered his passion for fashion while studying at Central Saint Martins (a highly looked upon school of arts) in London. Though he first studied photography, he discovered his interest and intrigue in to the fashion world after assisting his brother in his fashion photography pursuits, during his early twenties.
Currently on his second season of collections, Spring/Summer 2012, as well as getting a head start on Fall/Winter 2013, where he will be working on two scarf collections. Gurney explains to Vogue Italia, that he draws inspiration from "a snapshot from a film, book or magazine". His SS12 collection was inspired by xerographies from Bruno Munari, an Italian artist and designer who made a huge imprint on visual design and the arts. Gurney says "I already had in mind Flowers/Fauna, ice and washed out mountaineering clothes - So I guess I try and combine all of these inspirations". I think he did a great job combining all the elements in to women's fashion. Take a look!
