Alice Palmer shortlisted for Scottish Fashion Awards
Jun '13
The pioneering designer is known for bold and boundary-pushing creations and aims to change the way knitwear is perceived.

Inspired by science, technology, art and architecture, Alice Palmer creates sculptural ready-to-wear pieces focused on pattern and form.

Employing unconventional knitting techniques, she combines traditional and innovative methods to form garments that are groundbreaking, contemporary and wearable.

Drawing attention on an international scale, Alice Palmer was awarded ‘Best Womenswear Designer’ by ASOS in New York in 2008, leading to a diffusion collection for the site that was launched in spring of 2009.

She was a nominee for the ‘Fashion Designer of the Year’ award at the Scottish Style Awards, 2009 and in 2010, Palmer was selected by John Galliano to show on-schedule at London Fashion Week as part of Fashion Fringe.

Her spring/summer 2012 collection ‘Interstellar’ was exclusively launched in the D&G concept store in Milan in January 2013, with a nearly 100% sell through within the first month. Palmer was also nominated for the ‘Young Fashion Designer of the Year’ award at the Scottish Fashion Awards in both 2011 and 2012.

Alice Palmer received a BA in Knitted Textiles at the Glasgow School of Art and went on to receive a Masters at the Royal College of Art in London, specialising in Knitted Textiles. The Alice Palmer label was founded in 2008.
