Friday 14th March: Stephen Doherty AW14 at Somerset House

Last evening Stephen Doherty used a new venue within the vaults of Somerset House called "The Deadhouse" to show his first and AW14 collection.  Alongside the beautifully painted leather garments were installations in which his illustration work was hung.  The multi-media mix of one-off mark-marking and print design in the presentation was a perfect palette to refresh the senses after a month of back to back fashion weeks.  His practise has shifted up a gear by translating his signature free drawing style into surface pattern and applied from canvas to a wearable piece of art!  I haven't seen anything else like this before and look forward to seeing what follows!
