Lu Flux debuted at London Fashion Week as part of Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s anticipated ‘Ones to Watch’ show in February 2009. After exhibiting under the Estethica initiative at Somerset House for two seasons Lu was awarded the Innovation Award in conjunction with the Ethical Fashion Forum celebrating her inventive and exciting designs in the world of sustainable fashion. In September 2010 Lu presented her SS11 collection ‘Over the Hills and Far Away’ in London, Paris, Amsterdam and Tokyo. For her third season of exhibiting in Estethica, Lu received expert support from brand consultant Yasmin Sewell appointed to her through the British Fashion Council’s Eco Fashion Mentor Programme.
Born on the Isle of Wight, Lu studied Fashion at Edinburgh College of Art winning the Ocean Terminal Scottish Fashion Graduate Award with her final collection. Subsequently she went on to work as a design assistant to Bernhard Willhelm in his Paris studio before returning to the UK to start her own label.
The Lu Flux trademark of familiar patchwork patterns fashioned into wearable garments continues to charm a growing customer base that has begun to extend to an international level. Lu currently lives and works in London.
