A Fashion Student Stitched  FKA Twigs Flyers And Many More Into Her Final Collection

The singer-songwriter FKA Twigs plays a peripheral role in the Creative Arts Epson student, Eden Russell's design.

FKA Twigs is no stranger to the fashion world as she pulls sartorial references from 18th-century high society London (Vivienne Westwood collection) to the halcyon days of New York City’s club scene at the turn of the century (recent Instagram ’zines).

Graduate fashion design student Eden Russell designed a dress inspired by Twigs for the graduate student’s final collection which featured Twigs face on a standout blue knit sweater.
