INTRODUCING LIVERPOOL’S HOTTEST YOUNG DESIGNER – JAKE PHILLIP NUTTALL
When you think of the 80s you instantly think of GLAMOUR! Shoulder pads, big hair, electric colours & prints and the rara skirt! Boy, the glamour stakes are super high this Autumn/Winter from Jake Phillip Nuttall and his sensational collection. My Liverpool Life are always keen to see what has taken Jake’s eye and led to the flair we so often see on the catwalk at our events.
Head to toe crystals, electric blue, big hair and red lips certainly added the touch to the 80s inspired collection. Forget Joan Collins, Kim Wilde and Bananarama this 22 year old extrovert from Liverpool has the modern twist firmly in place on what was an iconic era.
All of Jake’s designs are original, handmade pieces made by his own fair hands. Hours and hours of work literally go into each couture design. He prides himself on making women look feminine and always dresses a lady’s curves with super sassy style!
The strikingly sassy Lisa Marie donned our catwalk with a floor length deep teal velvet backless evening dress. After the WOW’s from the crowd you could actually see the fit was perfect for our 80s queen!
Chloe Baker had the 70s twist on a classic 80s look with a flared black crystal jumpsuit. A low cowl neck made this a particular favourite with our guests.
Jake underwent an internship at Jean Paul Gaultier and you can clearly see the influences he has had in his designs. I look forward to seeing what more is to come from this fabulously talented local designer!
