‘Aurelia is the exploration of perspective through artistic mediums, foremost fashion design. My particular interest as a designer lies at the blurred line where Fashion and Art collide, which is what I intend to redefine through my designs. Inspired by my time training in professional dance at Rambert I created my first collection ,Vortex//Mania, featuring pieces in this line up. Vortex//Mania circles exploring muscularity in female bodies and sensuality in male bodies. The collection was designed and influenced by the human bone structure, the way flesh interacts with bones and its contortions. I wanted to focus on the biological architecture of different bodies, unconventionally, the supposed masculinity in female bodies or femininity in male bodies.

Noemie is a London based French and Japanese fashion designer.
Since a young age, Noemie has been passionate about creating. Her sewing journey began at 16, when she taught herself on YouTube with the goal of making her own prom dress. At the University of St. Andrews where she studied Business Management, her passion for designing grew even more as she took part of fashion shows as featured designer and theatre productions as head costumer. She attended the School of Fashion Design in Boston during the summer 2019 and since then has been working hard to make fashion design her career. Noemie has been creating garments for clients since 2019 and in 2020, showcased her first collection at Catwalk Charity Fashion Show. She moved in London in the summer of 2021.
Noemie finds inspiration in second hand materials, giving life to fabrics that otherwise would’ve been thrown out. Her recycled garments has been featured in Vogue multiple times.
Opening her online shop in 2022, she hopes to have her designs worn all over the world.

Introducing an incredible movement and designer UNIdaptive.
This social project was created by @bullockinclusion bringing inclusive fashion to the universities, sharing its knowledge on diversity, sustainability, and inclusivity with future designers.
Here’s a beautiful explanation by UNIdaptive of their goal for the project;
‘This is like an introduction to the world of inclusive fashion, and we hope to inspire the students to explore the unknown as there are so much more to include in the fashion world’.
This is the second year this project has participated in @london_represents catwalk, and we can’t wait to have them back!
We curate fashion with diversity in mind. Pick your product straight from your favourite brand. We do all te work for you.
We believe that fashion is a transformation tool. And we translate this into the curatorial format. We indicate the main inclusive solutions: whether they are designed by us, within our own brand, or by brands we recommend.
But, why curate fashion with diversity in mind? We answer in a very simple way: because everyone gets dressed. Fashion is a tool that reaches 100% of people.
Each product needs to make sense, have a purpose and work for everyone. For this reason, different perspectives build each review that we publish – to represent in a more real and plural way who are the people that we reach, with representation always on focus.
