Knitwear designer Helen Lawrence hails from Whitley Bay, outside Newcastle upon Tyne.
She gained a textile degree at Chelsea College of Art & Design before going onto the MA Fashion course at Central Saint Martins, graduating in 2012.
She soon started collaborating with CSM classmate and menswear talent Craig Green on his covetable knitwear.
Debuting her eponymous label with Fashion East for Autumn/Winter 2014, Helen Lawrence caught the eye of esteemed press and buyers with her brushed mohair two-pieces, blanket coats and sweaters with PVC scribble stitch embroidery.
Building on her signature shapes for Spring/Summer 2015, a second outing with Fashion East saw her hand-crafted knits paired with latex pieces.
Helen has been showing independently at London Fashion Week, picking up leading international stores including Dover Street Market, Opening Ceremony and Selfridges in the process. Helen has also collaborated with Browns on an exclusive menswear capsule collection.
All fabrics are created by Helen in-house.
