London-based designer Paula Knorr offers vibrant, sculptural designs which fuse disparate prints, textures and colours to create her innovative signature aesthetic of second-skin separates.
After graduating, Paula worked as a freelance designer for Peter Pilotto and as well as a variety of projects with well-known fashion stylists to capitalize on her strength in creating innovative draping and cutting techniques. Since founding her label, Paula Knorr’s creations have been worn by the likes of Björk, Solange Knowles, Marina and the Diamonds and skin of Sunk Anansie. Her work has also won the support of key industry individuals such as Barbara Grispini and Anna Orsini of the BFC, Sarah Mower, Demna Gvasalia of etements, Nicola Formichetti, Massimo Giorgetti of MSGM, and Emilio Pucci.
Since her SS17 presentation Paula has been supported by the British Fashion Council and was awarded NEWGEN, one of the most internationally recognised talent identification schemes which continues to support, showcase and promote new designers.
