Craig Lawrence

Craig Lawrence is a knitter by trade, but his avant-garde garments are far from your expectation of a comfy cardi. Not only does he use giant tools to loop lashings of ribbon, but the end result is garments that could easily make home hanging as sculpture in the MOMA. As it happens, they are best appreciated in movement when they billow and sway like anemones under the sea. His recent collection was captured on film with models seemingly in flight against a blue sky. Inherent to his risk-taking nature, this ingenius vision was achieved by hazardously bouncing them on a trampoline set on the roof of his East End home. Photo by Kenzie Burchell
