Courtney Plumb : A Class Act
Elegance, sophistication and a fascination with Dior is what makes new womenswear designer Courtney Plumb one of the top British graduates of 2016. At just 22, Courtney possesses a rare focus and determination of knowing exactly what she wants. Growing up in Cheshire, the daughter of two creatives, Courtney turned an interest in textiles and graphics throughout her teens into a passion for refined womenswear by the time she got to Birmingham City University. Encouraged to push her creative talents and strive for perfection, Courtney found confidence in studying something she was truly passionate about. A confidence which is epitomised in her graduate collection. Moody, dark and voluminous, Courtney’s collection is inspired by her time living in New York and explores the ideas of disparity and elevation and between the rich and poor.
We catch up with Courtney to hear about her experience at Birmingham City University, her collection and plans for the future.
