Fashion and Textile designer Joanna Vanderpuije hails from Central Saint Martins- Foundation, BA Fashion and finally MA Fashion. Throughout her degree Joanna worked for the likes of Alexander McQueen, Jonathan Saunders and Eley Kishimoto.
It is on the MA course in which she won the prominent award for both her designs and prints for Diane von Furstenberg. This led to her being invited by Diane to work in New York creating prints for DVF before returning to London to present her final collection at the Central Saint Martins A/W 2008 show.
Since graduating Joanna has presented her A/W 09 capsule collection with an exceptional response and has since shown Spring/Summer 2010 at London Fashion Week. She then took on the role as a headline designer abroad. Following this she worked as a US Vogue Assistant on editorials with David Sims...only to come back with her own staples line VALOUR/VANDERPUIJE. Her work fuses exceptional graphic hand drawn screen prints with impeccable cut.
Presented below are the photos from the new S/S2010 collection. A brief development of elements captured in A/W...it encapsulates a softer feeling with attention to texture, weight and finish. Leather is laser cut to expose delicate chiffon, shiny plastic embellishment is married with matt suede. Print is carefully considered to work with the body, yet cut is clean with hidden details within folds and seams.
The outcome is one that is fresh, playful with edge.

Joanna’s A/W 09/10 collection emphasises her strength in creating modern fresh tailored pieces that combine graphic hand drawn screen prints with unexpected embellishments. Perspex is laser cut to create glistening forms on wool crepe. Her aesthetic is one that is captivating yet distinct.

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG
Working for Diane in New York was an amazing opportunity - from designing to the fashion show. With only just over a week to move to NY after being personally invited by Diane and Nathan Jenden, it was a surreal yet valuable experience. Working on both RTW and pre-collection, my prints were used and featured as below.

The collection presented at London Fashion Week 08 was merely a snapshot of subtle textile experimentation. Working with a team who designed the silhouette and direction on final fabrication choice the outcome was clean, graphic yet elegant, it encouraged/instigated my move back to womenswear design. Therefore eventually leading me to create a vision completely true to myself and my type of woman....hence the leap forward to A/W 2009/10!!
