Corrie Nielsen & Kew to work for LFW SS 2013
Sep '12
London Fashion Week designer, Corrie Nielsen and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew have partnered for the spring/summer 2013 season. “I spend hundreds of hours researching and developing my collection each season and for spring/summer 2013, Kew is at the very centre. It is one of my most treasured spaces in London and the vast expanses of plant life and flowers will culminate for my strongest season to date. I can’t express what an honour it is to work with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew,” says Corrie.

The unique partnership sees Corrie Nielsen given unbridled access to the gardens. Access that includes right of entry to Kew’s seed libraries, original documentation from the journeys and discoveries of Charles Darwin, galleries and a vast catalogue of images.
“Fashion has always taken inspiration from flowers and plants, so it is a natural progression for Kew to work with a designer. This is the first partnership that we have entered into with a fashion designer and we are delighted to work with Corrie, who’s sculptural signature will bring Kew to life in a new way, on the catwalk.” Jonathan Marks, Head of Commercial Enterprises, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
Fascinated by form and design from young age as the daughter of a prominent American sculptor, Corrie Nielsen obtained a First Class Honours from Central Saint Martins and worked in bespoke tailoring before launching her eponymous label. 
Her impressive background includes being selected by John Galliano as the winner of the prestigious Fashion Fringe 2010 platform, establishing her as the emerging designer to watch out for. Drawing inspiration from historical periods and aristocracy, and combining her fascination of architectural forms and nature, she is lauded by the fashion press as a modern couturier with a truly unique aesthetic vision.
