9 February, London – COTTON USA is pleased to announce its sponsorship of designer brand and shirt specialists Palmer//Harding at London Fashion Week next week. Chosen for a fifth time to receive COTTON USA’s highly coveted support, the designers will benefit from a programme that has helped a wide range of leading fashion designers, such as Faustine Steinmetz, to showcase their talent and bring their creations to life through the use of U.S. cotton.
Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe, International Marketing Manager of COTTON USA, commented: “Palmer//Harding’s designs effortlessly combine style and luxury with the everyday wardrobe staple. Each season, the evolution of their collections truly demonstrates their skilled craftsmanship, and the versatility of working with U.S cotton to create such iconic pieces.”
“More than ever, working with fabrics and fibres that are of the highest quality and responsibly produced and sourced is an essential part of the design process. Just like COTTON USA, Palmer//Harding are passionate about this process, carefully considering the source of their fabrics before bringing their designs to life. We’re delighted to be returning to London Fashion week with them for another season,” Thiers-Ratcliffe added.
Levi Palmer, of Palmer//Harding, said: “We’re thrilled to receive the COTTON USA London Fashion Week sponsorship for another season. By working with U.S. cotton in our collections, we know that our pieces are made with fibres that are responsibly sourced but do not compromise on the innovation of our work – a quality that is at the heart of our brand’s values.”
For more than a decade, COTTON USA’s London Fashion Week sponsorship programme has provided a valuable platform for designers to elevate their profile and expand their individual brands. Previous recipients of the sponsorship includes Richard Nicholl, Meadham Kirchhoff, PPQ, Preen and Louise Gray.
