Fashion: As seen at ... Liberty reader evening
Wednesday 01 April 1998
Stylist Sophia Neophitou took to the stage to guide readers through some of this spring's designer looks - explaining how the designer puts an outfit together on the catwalk and how the consumer should wear it.
While readers got some useful practical advice and the opportunity to shop after closing time, designers also gained an insight into what their potential customers are looking for.
Mr Moss upset some of the audience by claiming his label is for 18 to 35-year-olds. "I design for what I know, and that isn't ageist, there is no class or age divide," he retorted.
Mr Webber welcomed the opportunity to meet customers, saying: "It is important to learn about people's demands - it helps to tailor the aesthetics to actual people." Mr MacKenzie added: "At the end of the day, it is about real people wearing real clothes. It's good that people are finding ways of problem-solving and mixing designer clothes for individual styles."
