New Sher­iff an ar­rest­ing sight

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - With Des­mond Eddy

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.
