This Factor's In all places: Chopova Lowena's Funky, Punky Pleated Skirts

Do you ever acknowledge a product earlier than you already know — and even can title — the model that makes it? In “This Factor’s In all places,” we delve deep into these ubiquitous items and the affect they’ve on the companies of their creators. 

It has been a victorious couple of years for Chopova Lowena.

In 2020, the London-based model was among the many eight winners of the LVMH Prize, which, as well as money and mentorship, supplies younger designers with a world highlight bolstered by the worldwide trend neighborhood. Within the case of designers Emma Chopova and Laura Lowena-Irons, it created much more buzz across the vigorously pleated, hardware-focused skirts produced from upcycled Bulgarian aprons that had been part of their model since their 2017 Central Saint Martins graduate assortment.
