Alice Archer presented her Spring/Summer 2020 collection on 14/09 during London Fashion Week. A textiles focussed project with a simple yet elegant silhouette. during the presentation models walked slowly  around the space, elegantly presenting the watercolour-floral garments, sequin embellished on tulle and poplin dresses, printed silk dresses and coats. 

The collection took inspiration from the watercolour paintings of Scottish architect, designer, water colourist and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Alice has created embroideries that feel like watercolours. Techniques including embroidered line drawings, painted prints sublimated onto embroideries of luscious peonies and delicate sweet peas, jewel-like sequin work and layered tulle are used by Alice to form textures which are rich and fluid. Garments from the collection were beautiful, embroidery and print placement fully realised, whether the embroidery or prints are on part of the entirety of the garments they are well placed. The textiles also give you an illusion, some of the embroideries looks like they are printed on garments, a delicately blurry illusion.
The designer said The garments are made to be treasured, slow fashion that exudes the care with which it has been made, Alice brought a very important and powerful message, as fast fashion brands produce massive quantities of garments, the quality of the clothing are doubtable, and shoppers of course care less about the cheap priced clothing. Brands should slow down their production and care more about the quality.
