Burrill at fashion week

Anthony Burrill designed the invite and catwalk set for London fashion designer Jenny Packham’s show earlier this week. And that’s not all he’s been working on with the designer…

Since admiring his show at Colette last year, London-based fashion designer Jenny Packham has taken a bit of a shine to the work of graphic designer and image maker Anthony Burrill – who she commissioned to design the set and invite to her London Fashion Week show, Alive, earlier this week…

As well as working on the invite (above) and the catwalk set, Burrill got his musician friends, Acid Washed, involved too. “They came over from Paris,” Burrill tells us, “and played a special 15-minute long piece during the show which they’d worked on with Jenny specially. They sent over a few rough mixes to us in London, we listened to them and gave some feedback and direction and it all just fell into place really.”

We posted this video Burrill did with Acid Washed for their track, Snake, just last week – but here it is again in case you missed it. The graphics-inspired vid was created by Anthony Burrill, Jack Featherstone and Paul Plowman through production company Recordmakers.

In fact, this week’s catwalk show isn’t the first time Burrill has collaborated with Jenny Packham – he first worked with her on her show, Pretty Girl No. 1, last September (view images on Burrill’s Flickr page) and has since also worked on a window display for her London store. Nor is it the last time: Burrill tells us that he and Packham are talking about collaborating on graphics to be printed onto fabrics for use in one of her future collections. Watch this space…
