    Entries in James Steward (7)


    James Steward & Asobi Fashion @ The Leeds Library

    As part of our work with Trinity Leeds we recently produced a photo-shoot featuring the work of Leeds designer James Steward and Leeds Fashion Show Emerging Designer award winner, Shi-Yuen Li of Asobi Fashion. The shoot took place at the beautiful Leeds Library. The shoot was styled by our very own Head of Fashion Shang-Ting Peng.

    We had always planned to showcase one of the winners from Leeds Fashion Show in a special photo-shoot for the Trinity Leeds Facebook Page and we thought it would be pretty cool to team up Shi-Yuen's work with established Leeds designer James Steward and see what we could create. 

    We worked with our friends at Bond, photographer Warwick Stein and make-up artist Nicki Swain and their fantastic models, Paige Moore and Eliza Tate and we also worked with the ace Hasselblad and, a behind the scenes video is on the way to show how the shoot went down. 

    We hope you dig the photos and we will leave you with the official line from Trinity Leeds...

    "Trinity Leeds is committed to supporting emerging fashion talent in Leeds and as part of our 'Taking the T' into Leeds campaign, Trinity Leeds sponsored Leeds Fashion Show 2011. At the show we were introduced to designer Shi-Yuen Li who won the 'Emerging Designer' award. We recently invited Shi-Yuen and prominent Leeds designer James Steward to take part in a photo-shoot staged at our near neighbour The Leeds Library on Commercial Street. The shoot was styled by Shang Ting Peng and shot by Leeds photographer Warwick Stein. 

    We hope our projects will provide moments of inspiration and surprise, and reflect the city's past, present and future as a destination for fashion, food, film and culture."

    Stay tuned for the 'making of' video shot for Hasselblad and a guest blog post from a special Hebe work-experience guest on the shoot :)

    Barca Crew Meet Up

    A couple of weeks ago we had night out with some of the people involved in the recent Leeds in Barcelona project. It seems everyone has been crazy busy since we got back doing really cool stuff, so it was great to get us all back together for one night!

    We were missing a couple of the gang but a fun night was had by all. We caught up over a nice meal at the Mint Hotel with Marketing Leeds then headed off into the city, checking in at Azucar to see Howard Marks and the awesome Louise Rennison then we headed... actually things became a little fuzzy after that point but it was a great night!

    Leeds in Barcelona: Spotlight on James Steward

    As regular readers of our site will already know, we are big fans of James Steward. We see him as the foremost couture designer in Leeds and think he is destined for great things in the future. We are delighted to have him on board for Leeds in Barcelona: A Creative Encounter and know that he will go down a storm with both the crowd and the design students at IED.

    The last 12 months have been a crazy ride for James. It was around 12 months ago we worked together on the first Leeds in Barcelona project when James showcased some of his stuff in a photo-shoot at Temple Works. Since then he has shown at Vancouver Fashion Week, featured in OK magazine and will by the time you read this smashed the Baftas with his piece for Katherine Kelly (post edit: James made front page of Daily Mirror with that!)

    As part of the line-up for this project we wanted to show one of our designers who has real craftsmanship and can stand along side other designers of great pedigree who will be on the Barcelona side of this collaboration... James give us that. He is a supremely talented pattern-maker who seems to advance his body of work to new levels with every collection he produces.

    As one part of the project is at the European Institute of Design we know James will provide a great example for the fashion design students who will attend and read about the event. Like many of them he went to study abroad at a foreign design institute and returned home to make a brand and business for himself. He will provide a great example and case study for some of the IED students.

    We are looking forward to seeing the reaction to James in Barcelona and can't wait to see the photos after the big showcase event.
