In The Hot Seat - Amelia Walsh
No two VC Angels are the same but they all share one thing in common, a desire for well fitting, well made, comfortable staple clothing. This is the reason we decided to showcase in our "In The Hot Seat" series some of the amazing yet diverse women who, have championed the brand, supported and shared the vision to revive quality textiles and ethical British manufacturing and have worn the PBL since the start.
Amelia is passionate about fashion. She is a recent graduate of the highly revered LCF (London College Of Fashion) where she studied fashion pattern cutting. Her third year final collection was inspired by the 60's space race, interested in how 60s fashion reflected a modern and minimalist approach and she used clean geometric shapes and lines to reflect the idea of futurism in her final year catwalk collection.
She has been a PBL wearer for 3 years and has shared her legging love time and time again by kindly posting many pictures online so check out her wonderful work and please help us say a big thank you by following her feed on Instagram @ameliaa_walsh
