In May 2013, Issa announced Blue Farrier as its new Creative Director. Blue now heads up the brand’s in-house design team, based in London. Her first Collection for the brand was Pre-Fall 2014, which launched to press in January 2014 and hits stores in May 2014.
‘It is an exciting time to join the brand. I'm looking forward to working with the Issa team in developing the brand to reach its full potential,’ says Blue.
With a wealth of industry experience, including six years alongside Phoebe Philo at Chloe, and a stellar reputation, Blue has been able to attract the highest calibre of designers to further build the Issa design team.
Blue graduated with a first class degree from the prestigious Central Saint Martins MA Fashion Design Course. She went on to work in womenswear design roles in Italy and London before heading to Paris to design for Chloe.
Blue then moved on to work on a consultancy basis for a number of high profile brands. Her consultancy experience is multi-faceted, covering not only womenswear design, but incorporating digital projects, packaging and branding design across the fragrance and accessories categories. This wealth and depth of experience makes Blue the perfect choice to evolve the Issa brand on a global scale.
