Faux Fur Fo Sho From Sophie McKay
The designer Sophie McKay uses faux fur and is afraid to say it, and we quote: “My collection was inspired by Greek and Roman sculpture and the way that certain sculptures capture beautifully, the fluidity of fabric in a solid material such as stone or brass. After a trip to shepherds bush I impulsively bought some fun fur (the very very fake type!) and shaved into it to create shadows, replicating the lines of draped, flowing fabric. I became really interested in the way that I could create a desirable textile out of a fabric that isn’t generally considered luxurious. Further experimentation led me to use sheepskin where I had a very deep pile to play with, which created dramatic shadows when cut. I also suspended pieces of faux fur and goatskin on chiffon, giving the fur a unexpectedly fluid movement which worked really well on the runway.” Now, would you wear one of these babies down the boulevard?
