Jean-Pierre Braganza, the London-born and Canada-raised womenswear designer, is the latest emerging talent to join the high-street fashion chain River Island’s Design Forum initiative.

Inspired by the kingfisher bird, the London’s Central Saint Martins’ grad has created an 11-piece capsule collection, replete with architectural silhouettes and urban style aesthetics.

To be available for purchase in stores and online from February 16, 2015 onwards, the range will include shirt dresses, boilers suits, bomber jackets and zip-embellished jeans.

Before Braganza, the London’s Royal College of Art alumnus Katie Eary was picked up by the label as part of its Design Forum initiative which gives up and coming designers an opportunity to showcase their collections before a much wider audience.

Inspired from the American author Hunter S. Thompson written book 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas', Eary created an 18-piece collection for the UK brand in December, 2013.

The other designers who have been part of the Design Forum initiative earlier are Georgia Hardinge, Julian J Smith, Tom Lipop, William Tempest and Eudon Choi.

Founded in 1948, headquartered in London, River Island operates over 300 stores in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Russia, Holland, Poland, Belgium and the Middle East.

Jean-Pierre has worked with the French fashion designer Roland Mouret before setting up his own label. (PB)
