Cooperative Designs for Browns

Browns Focus showcases Cooperative Designs as they takeover their windows with a tribal theme.

Cooperative Designs have taken over the Browns Focus windows with their signature strip knit dresses, featured in their debut collection for London Fashion Week. The design duo, Annalisa Dunn and Dorothee Hagemann came together upon completion of their Central St Martin's MA in womenswear “We shared the same creative vision and when our course came to its end we decided to join forces and create a Cooperative”. Inspiration for the collection comes from Ettore Sottsass, head of the Milan based design collective called Memphis who were particularly prevalent in the 1980s. And the use of bold primary colours in stripe format, which translate to fine and chunky hand knits in figure hugging floor length numbers and thigh skimming body conscious dresses.

"Browns picked us up in our first season, and they have been so supportive,  it is really exciting to be featured in their window, especially with our first catwalk collection. Its a real honour.  We have also had a window recently with legendary New York department store Henri Bendel, on 5th Avenue, for whom we designed a capsule collection for Spring Summer 09."

Cooperative Designs present their S/S 10 collection at London Fashion Week this coming September.
