London Fashion Week SS12 Day 5: Presentation Oliver Ruuger

Oliver Ruuger appeared on my radar about two months back. Ruuger studied at the Royal College of Art. He told me he likes to create collages of images to aide in his ideas process. From these, he draws from the strange, hybridised shapes he creates and turns them into the real thing. Material of choice: Horse hair, leather and studs. Seriously talented - he put on a bloody good presentation cum installation in the Freemasons Hall, Covent Garden, pitching it somewhere between Dali, Harry Potter, S&M and Mary Poppins. One to watch.
