fabulous fred

Once an assistant to set designer Shona Heath, Britain-based prop/accessory creator Fred Butler is charged with designing some of fashion and music's more innovative and edgy costumery. Her geometric headwear, shoulder pads and costumes have earned her such clients as La Roux, Lady Gaga and Patrick Wolf, including editorial and advertisement work for Teen Vogue, MAC Cosmetics and ASOS. Though her work is reminiscent of set designs/space suits from 70s and 80s sci-fi films, it is this concept from which she seems to borrow that has somehow made her relevant in the modern age (what's old is new again.)

What I wouldn't give to wear a piece of hers...
