Krasimira Stoyneva will be featuring her latest collection which features real hair at London Fashion Week.

The 35-year-old, who was originally born in Bulgaria, plans convince big name industry that it is time to “wear hair, not fur” at Freemason’s Hall next Friday.

The mum-of-two is one of four up-and-coming designers selected to take part in Fashion Scout’s prestigious Ones to Watch show.

She said: “There will be a lot of press there, a lot of buyers, famous people. It’s going to be great. Every designer wants to see their collections on the catwalk. It’s magic,”

“I have gaudy, hairy garments, which are actually really wearable. I really stand behind the idea of wear hair, not fur and hair has so much potential.”

The budding fashion designer has already started making a name of herself, as she won the prestigious Muuse x Vogue Talents Young Vision Award in 2014, her designs have appeared in Vogue Italia and Polish singer Margaret wore one of her jackets at a New Year’s Eve celebration.

She will now be hoping to show 
off her signature synthetic material and show the fashion world 
her unique collection of clothing, which has been inspired by both 
the political upheaval taking 
place around the world, as well as society’s obsession with celebrity and fame.

“It’s been getting mad with politics and everything that has been happening in the world, she said.

“But this isn’t me telling a story. It’s more to make people question and think about things.”
