Fashion Week El Paseo™ 2017
FIDM Designer Francesca Lake

Francesca Lake
FIDM/ Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising

Francesca Lake was born in London, England, but grew up in Kingston, Jamaica, and has created a collection, perhaps not surprising, that follows the evolution of a woman "in bloom." Her designs rely on striking colors — red, purple, teal, and white — and cover a broad spectrum of texture including rigid pieces that create a sense of armor and more free-flowing chiffon. After graduating from FIDM, Lake plans to continue honing her skills by working in the fashion industry. Among the luminaries whom Lake admires are Elie Saab, Stéphane Rolland, and Iris van Herpen. One day, she would like to be the creative director of a leading fashion house.
