Molly Goddard specialises in traditional hand-craft techniques such as hand pleating, smocking and crocheting. She won British Emerging Talent award at the 2016 Fashion Awards.Her work touches upon themes of special occasions, nostalgia and coming of age, often taking inspiration from party dressing and Sunday best. The techniques that she utilises serve to create clothes that are both delicate and fragile, but the character she designs for conflicts with the beauty of her technique, and brings a clumsy and charming awkwardness to her silhouettes and fabric combinations.
