Fashion statement

Mighton Products recently made its catwalk debut at a prestigious London fashion show on May 18, thanks to an unusual request for clothing materials from a student studying at Central Saint Martins College.

Student Harry Gibbs was researching alternative materials for the university’s end of year runway show, when he stumbled across Mighton’s stainless steel sash chain. After originally planning to use the sash chain for jewellery, he actually ended up creating a full outfit from the product, and contacted the hardware specialist with a request for sponsorship in order to help him realise the designs.

Mighton Products said it is used to going the extra mile in order to keep its new and existing clients happy, and while Harry’s appeal was definitely one of the most bizarre to ever land in the company’s inbox, arrangements were made to supply a total of 13 15m rolls of sash chain to help with his project.

Harry’s garments, which will take around 70 hours in total to complete, will be part of the Central Saint Martins College fashion show – an event that’s previously been judged by the likes of Celine and Luis Vuitton and covered by Vogue – and will be exhibited by the university as part of a degree show attended by around 75,000 people.
