Little Nell presents an exhibition of looks inspired by the Netflix original Emily in Paris. After recently binge watching the series and being blown away by the costume and the pivotal role it plays in the show, Little Nell designed a handful of garments using their typical processes of upcycling and reworking second hand clothing. The brand strives for a vision of sensational looks created from previously unloved textiles. The clothing used takes the characters from script to screen, enhancing the social context of the drama portrayed. Little Nell is often inspired by couture, fashion houses and editorial tableaux. Emily in Paris offers the opportunity to take inspiration from featured design houses such as Chanel, Louboutin and Dior.
Sophie New, the designer and maker behind Little Nell graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2016 and has since focused on the idea of wearable art alongside organising exhibitions, events and fashion shows.
