Feral Fashion and Textiles are a diverse group of independent creative designer makers, sharing a studio in the vibrant Fruit Market cultural quarter in Hull.

Founded in 2018, each member works as an individual, designing and creating within their own specialism. However, their individual talents and appreciation for fashion has also inspired the designers to create a collection of unique pieces by collaborating with one another for the YFW runway.

Those that took part in the Independent Runway Show at YFW include Kerry Winter, a bespoke headwear designer making hats inspired by stylish couture, and Lisa Cowan, who fashions beautiful bags from up-cycled vintage fabric. Zac Girdlestone of Meadowsweet & Myrtle showcased his capsule collection of tailoring with a twist which explores creative pattern cutting techniques, while Jurgita Li presented her vivid textiles made from manipulated Nuno felt. Lynn Benson, who transforms very small areas of contemporary art into digital patterned fabric chose to feature her printed garments.

The combined collection featured detailed embroidery and mixed media fabrics, with inspirations including modern fashion trends, and ancient artworks. The pieces came together to form a magnificent collection that portrayed the true story of collaboration and passion behind Feral Fashion and Textiles.

While their mediums may vary, the designers at Feral Fashion and Textiles are connected by a strong friendship and a passion for making inventive, eclectic apparel. “The relationship between us is excellent,” the team said. “We sometimes work with each other and often create together. Everything produced is unique, high quality, one off bespoke pieces of work.” This synergy was truly reflected in their runway collections, where each designers’ work was unified by the group’s chosen piece of classical music.

Feral Fashion and Textiles were delighted to be taking part in York Fashion Week: “Anything that helps perpetuate Fashion & Textiles in the North is so important … after the pandemic it’s a brilliant way to get the Fashion & Textiles industry up and running, and to show what people can bring to the community.” At YFW we were thrilled to feature this collection on the runway at the Independent FashionRunway Show, and we can’t wait to follow the designers through their creative journeys.
