Workers for Freedom

Established in 1985 by Graham Fraser and Richard Notts, (who previously was the assistant designer to Valentino). Workers for Freedom received the great accolade by the British Fashion Council of 'Designer of the Year' in 1989, presented by Princess Diana. Described by the LA Times as 'rich-hippie intellectual clothes', Workers for Freedom went against the grain in the 1980s, creating minimalist clothing in natural fabrics that flowed in a similar vein to Japanese designers, Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons and Issey Miyake, rather than the extreme exagerrated look of the 80s.
