Hush Launches First-Ever Fashion Collection Created In-House Interns.

The collection will be launching on 13 May exclusively at its UK website, the capsule collection of “bold prints and laidback staples” has been created by its “team of next-generation talent”, as part of Hush’s paid internship programme.
The nine-piece capsule collection features bold prints and laid-back staples and every piece has been sustainably sourced. Design inspiration was drawn from artist Vernon Panton’s work, whose aesthetics featured heavily in the 1960s. The collection is called the Intern Collection, it brings together the work of its design, garment tech, buying, merchandising, and sustainability teams. “Every piece is sustainably sourced and perfectly encapsulates hush’s signature laid back style”, the company noted.

Mandy Watkins, the founder of Hush, said: “Everyone here is so excited to see what our interns have achieved and we can’t wait to share the results of their talents and hard work with the launch of our first-ever intern collection. I feel very fortunate to work in a place where every day I’m surrounded by so many bright, enthusiastic young people — and I love that we can give them the opportunity to explore their creativity either via our own intern programme or via our partnership with Hackney Empire’s Creative Futures programme.”

As a further step to celebrate homegrown talent, Hush will also be launching a partnership with the charity Hackney Empire, linked to its Creative Futures Programme. The programme is about giving opportunities to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds “to use arts and creativity to learn a new talent or just giving them a safe place to be”.

An eye-catching floral print is the collection’s main motif, hand-drawn by the in-house design intern who has since been promoted to a permanent Assistant Designer position.
In addition to fostering the young talent, Hush has also partnered with Hackney Empire, a theatre supporting the next generation of storytellers and creators.
