In the week that fashion designer Michael Halpern made his debut on the official London Fashion Week schedule, we are excited to bring you a never before seen edit of his presentation at last year’s festival. 

Each year, renowned fashion writer and US Vogue’s chief critic Sarah Mower steps into position as the curator of the Wardrobe Department at Port Eliot. As well as bringing fashion’s great and good to the festival, Sarah invites new graduates to present their collections. In 2016, Michael Halpern’s collection made its first debut outside of Central Saint Martins, in the walled garden. Modelled by festival-goers Octavia, Imogen, Bea, Aggie and Lulu Warren and Rosanna Falconer, Halpern’s high-octane, sequinned glamour lit up Port Eliot. 

The Wardrobe Department at Port Eliot Festival is a unique way to experience fashion. it is populated by a wealth of designers and fashion commentators that over the years have included Barbara Hulanicki, Giles Deacon, Luella Bartley, Stephen Jones, Molly Goddard, Tim Blanks, Alexander Fury, Susie Bubble, Chloe and their creative director Claire Waight Keller to name just a few. From fashion illustration and hair and beauty workshops with brands such as MAC and Bumble & Bumble, to live shows featuring models cast from festival goers, it is a place where everyone can be a part of the creativity and where the fashion world is accessible and fun.
