An Interview with Future Classics Fashion Designer Julie Wilkins

Multi-talented designer and musician Julie Wilkins describes the ideas behind her latest fashion collection.

Future Classics AW14 by Gareth A Hopkins
Future Classics A/W 2014 by Gareth A Hopkins.

Fashion designer Julie Wilkins explores ideas of garment construction/deconstruction, radical conservatism and androgyny for A/W 2014.

Julie Wilkins is also a musician, releasing her album as The Electra Woods in May this year.
