Global clothing brand has introduced a new concept of clothing which mixes a lot of heritage patterns from historical periods and natural materials with a modern day twist, Global have created a number of new designs to cater for the trendy dressers of today. These designs have been made to the exact specification of the designer as each garment is hand made in England, we feel this touch gives the product not only a guarantee of the highest quality craft but also carries of the heritage background of creating an english product in England.
The Designer describes the Global Heritage Line as “To me they are inspirational designs, as I have a mixed background with lots of different cultures and traditions, I feel this is a way of me being able to show and express different concepts into clothing by using hereditary patterns on fashionable products”.
The pieces are designed to be lasting, trans seasonal, signature concepts featuring Global’s Heritage Logo. Our aim is to get people to wear clothing that they wouldn’t normally go for such as different patterns which wouldn’t really appeal to them, but with a little knowledge on how the patterns occurred and what they stand for may change peoples interpretation on the symbols used. This is to create a multicultural fashion world with everyone being able to take part in showing off there inherited roots. A general misconception is that somethings can only be worn by certain people so we want to let anyone dress how they feel with the right to be part of any culture which is all part of the nature and natural selection in our creation to the clothing approach it all depends on our chosen view and learning. While exploring the ever changing it is also possible to explore and discover new things even if there from the past.
