Tim Rhys-Evans is from Aberdovey in North Wales and joined London College of Fashion MA Fashion Design and Technology Womenswear after gaining a prestigious Harold Tillman scholarship. Tim has already created a buzz in the media after being featured in Elle for his BA collection which won the British Fashion Council Creative Cutting Award at Graduate Fashion Week in 2008. He has interned with Gareth Pugh and more recently has worked as a pattern cutter for Jaeger.
Tim’s MA collection which expertly mixes statement and wearable pieces makes him a stand out talent. Tim’s work has an air of surrealism and fantasy and plays on ideas of escapism heavily influenced by the times in which we live – of recession and uncertainty. Seeping through as a theme are gothic overtones and Elizabethan dress – reflecting a new take on female power dressing. Using the ruff as a starting point Tim has created striking contemporary silhouettes – centring the focus on the upper body and eliminating the neck and shoulders from view.
Tim is currently looking for backing to start his own label.
