Megan Sadler a multidisciplinary designer has designed a collection of garments called [SYNERGY] A capsule collection fusing Architecture and Fashion. The capsule collection pushes the creative boundaries to explore Architecture through Fashion, as way to bring the work of Architects into the public eye. This is a first at looking at bringing Architecture and Architectural drawings to life through a more tactile approach, garments.
With an Architectural background herself, she found an opportunity in some of the beautiful drawings produced during studying, that inspired her to translate these drawings into textile prints, and create garments with forms inspired by the Architecture project. The garments have beautiful detailing, vivid prints and all use on-trend technical fabrics which lend lend themselves to creating the forms intended.

FAULT isn’t giving up on the summer yet – it’s not over until the last Bestival act sings! There’s plenty more festivals to fit in until then too and next weekend we’re heading to Victorious on Southsea Seafront.
With party-banging headliners like Basement Jaxx, Tinnie Tempah and Ella Eyre, as well as some rock legends including The Darkness and Ray Davies of The Kinks over two days, this festival has attracted big names for only its fourth year. It has also made the shortlist for the AIM Independent Music Awards Golden Welly Award for Best Independent Music Festival. What’s more, it’s one of the most affordable festivals in the country, perfect for a last minute bank holiday escape!
There’s nine stages to keep you entertained including an acoustic stage, a ‘beats and swing’ tent and a showcase stage for new talent. There’s also a real ale festival and boutique garden and market. Want to make a weekend of it? Your wristband also gets you free entry to lots of attractions on the Southsea Seafront.
You’re more likely to find us reliving our teenage years listening to The Fratellis, The Subways and Super Furry Animals on the main stage though!
For the full line-up and tickets visit the Victorious Festival website.
At a mere 16, Sofia Richie is arguably already in the famous lyrics of her father, Three Times A Lady. She’s not only following in his footsteps by starting to cultivate her singing career, but has also been making a real splash in the world of fashion and modeling. She chats to Fault about her recent signing and what it’s like to be a model, her love of fashion design and where it came from, and also what the future might hold. Full of life, this girl knows what she wants and has a pretty good idea about how she’s going to get it.
Take a peek inside FAULT Issue 21 where we chat to the rising model about her future, fears and favourite parts about the industry she is determined to crack.
FAULT: So, you’ve recently been signed to Select Model Management, are you enjoying being a model?
Sofia Richie: Yeah I love it, it’s definitely different to anything I’ve ever done in my life, but I really enjoy it and I’m so excited about what’s coming up.
Great, what would you say your favourite part about being a model is?
Honestly I just love wearing all the different clothes I’m put in, so mainly everything about the fashion part of the job.
It’s great that you say you want to be taken seriously in the fashion industry – does it ever upset you if other people, even your colleagues, say that people who come from a place within the public eye have it much easier as a model?
It doesn’t really upset me because it’s obviously their problem if people think we’re not working to get where we are today. It honestly just makes me want to work even harder and be more successful, because at the end of the day we are certainly working hard whether people realise or not.
What’s your dream for 10 years time? Where do you want to be?
I want to work towards my own fashion line and doing collaborations with fashion lines; I’m really focused on my fashion and modeling right now.
Is fashion design something you’ve always been interested in?
Yeah, I’ve always been super interested. When I was younger my parents bought me this little sketch book with blank girls in it so you can draw clothes on them. That’s something I started out doing a long time ago, and it’s how I think I became seriously interested in fashion by just being creative with it.
Finally, what is your FAULT?
I’m very harsh on myself. I’m critical and judgmental of myself when it comes to everything I do.
Victoria Park in Hackney has played host to Lovebox for so many years and now it’s become very much a staple of local festival goers’ calendars. This year saw the Sunday dropped off in favor of a 2-day affair, this didn’t seem to affect the numbers or the feel good factor on a beautiful sunny Friday afternoon. Does anyone work around here we asked ourselves as we headed straight into an early afternoon treat in the shape of the Despacio tent. Judging by the throngs of party-goers dancing to the cool disco house sounds of 2 Many D.J’s and James Murphy & friends the answer is definitely a resounding no! Next up we hit the ‘Aperol Spritz Social’ stage just in time to hear Norman Jay smashing out his eclectic catalogue of feel good tunes synonymous with Notting Hill Carnival and had us heading for some tasty treats backstage to refuel before the evening hit.
Our highlight of the weekend was about to start and we made our way to the front of the main stage as we ticked another band off our bucket list. Cypress Hill are legends of the Hip Hop scene and they certainly did not disappoint. They floated effortlessly through their set in a superbly executed back catalogue of records that had the crowd in the palm of their hand by the time ‘Insane in the Membrane’ hit home. Returning on Saturday feeling slightly disheveled from the previous night’s fun we took time to hit all the rides and took full advantage of the guys selling beers from their backpacks, why would you queue in a beer tent?
Onto the headliner of the night, Snoop dog, the biggest crowd of the weekend waited eagerly for the big fella and it wasn’t long before he was on stage dressed in an England football shirt and ably assisted by an MC and some bad ass dancing girls. He smashed through his set and the place erupted. There was still time to squeeze in a visit to see Little Dragon performing their electric synth pop tunes on the 2nd stage. Her voice is incredible and lit up a great end to the evening. Love Box certainly know how to strike a balance of cool and upcoming music with some traditionally bigger names. It’s a well-organised event in a great location. We’ll definitely be back next year…
FAULT Favourite’s Norwegian vocalist and DJ, Mariann Rosa is back with new single ‘Frikkin’ Fantastic’ and we’ve got the first exclusive stream! Following up from ‘Banjo for My Bitches’ which took over the airwaves earlier this year.
The track is unique and everything we’ve come to expect from Mariann as she quickly becomes the queen of futuristic electro-pop. Produced by Zebra1 and mixed and mastered by Dario Dendi, the single will be released via POPjoy on 5th October.
While she might be a new name to our readers, in Mariann’s native country of Scandinavia she is well known for her time as front woman of power pop band Surferosa and supporting The Killers, Electric Six and Turbonegro. Not to mention the fact that she once sat on the judging panel of Norway’s version of ‘Idol’.
With a personal style as unique and wondrous as her music, Mariann Rosa is definitely one to watch for the coming months as her music continues to garner interest on an international scale. We are very proud to present you with the brand new track ‘Frikkin Fantastic’ below!
