Dublin born designer Danielle Romeril has taken the last few seasons of London Fashion Week by storm. First presenting at Somerset House in September 2012, it has been nothing but success after success for this young womenswear designer. Romeril won support from the Topshop NEWGEN in AW14, awarded by the British Fashion Council.

With a low key aesthetic, Romeril manages to create accessible but luxury clothes for women. Taking inspiration from sportswear, she often creates deconstructed silhouettes, combined with interesting textures like organza, embroidery and silk, giving her clothes interesting shape and depth. Romeril’s intuition with print is obvious across her collection. Layering fabric, laser cutting and sewing together blocks of different fabric are all ways in which she creates pattern beyond printed or woven textile but what really makes her garments stand out is the impeccable finish.

Her autumn/winter ‘14 collection takes inspiration from lenticular prints. Nostalgic, wavy, patterns printed onto acrylic and malleable plastic reminds me of snap bands and pencil cases from my youth, so it’s hard to imagine how this fabric is used to look sophisticated but Romeril has pulled it off. Short, wide sleeves and pleated knee length skirts add femininity to the collection that has her signature casual style all over it. Pared with Celine style pony hair plimsoles and layered with turtlenecks completes the look.
