A passage to India, by Lauren Slater

Gosh that sounds like a novel, doesn't it?
Well it's not, it's better: one of my oldest, bestest, and loveliest friends, Lauren Slater, has set up a Kickstarter for her final major fashion project for her Fashion Design degree which she studies at Westminster University.

I could try to tell you about it, but Lauren herself does a much better job than I could, here is a section copied from the Kickstarter page:

"A Passage To India // The Collection
A Passage To India is my final major project during my Fashion Design BA Hons at Westminster University in
London. The project is the creation of a six look womenswear collection.
The collection has been inspired by turn of the 20th century menswear fashion and draped traditional Indian silhouettes and named after the novel by E.M Forster. Initially inspired by the upcoming film by Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel) the collection finds its details in tasseled keys of vintage hotel rooms, hotel workers uniforms from the 1920s and the drapes of bed sheets. 
The collection will be mainly handmade and entirely created in London, supporting British fabric suppliers and haberdasheries and the british fashion industry. 
Your donations will also help to get the collection to the Westminster Fashion graduate catwalk show in May!"
Lauren is a fantastic designer, illustrator and person- please help her realise this fantastic project by donating to her campaign!
