New Sheriff an arresting sight
WA fashion designer and Hoodedwept creative director Neil Sheriff will showcase the label’s signature aesthetic at Paris Mercedes-benz Fash- ion Week’s N°10_SHOWROOM from September 26 to October 3.
Hoodedwept is one of only three Australian brands invited to show new collections at the prestigious Cube exhibition, which will feature seven days of viewings and appointments, with more than 7000 high-profile industry buyers, wholesalers, journalists and fashion commentators from across Europe and Asia.
The invitation comes from Philippe Natali and his team at the N°10_ SHOWROOM, who continually source new, emerging talents and has helped launch the careers of some of the world’s top international designers, including Misomber Nuan and Gareth Pugh.
Sheriff said it was a fantastic opportunity to put the Australian brand on fashion’s world stage.
“This unprecedented acknowl- edgement and international exposure is a dream come true and could not come at a better time for Hoodedwept’s growth,” he said.
“This opportunity will help cement our place within the Australian and international fashion industry as an innovative and directional brand that now spans worldwide reach.”
Designed and produced in Australia, Hoodedwept present made-toorder, monochromatic, fashion- forward pieces for men and women that emphasise strong, functional silhouettes and textural fabrics.
Sheriff’s inspirations come from a variety of sources, including music and lyrics.
The 2017 autumn/winter collection, Nexus, takes inspiration from NASA’S Cassini mission to Jupiter and Saturn and references shapes and textures encountered in our galaxy.
