Corrie Nielsen partnered with Kew Gardens in London to create a collection inspired by horticulture. This is the first time the famed green space has ever worked with a designer. Corrie's spring/summer 2013 show takes its inspiration from West London park, with the designer having been granted unprecedented access to areas otherwise reserved for Kew experts, such as its seed libraries and private galleries.

Fashion for the Brave
CORRIE NIELSEN showcased her unique British-inspired design at Fashion for the Brave, a charity set up in 2010 to raise money for wounded servicemen and their families through an annual gala event. As the project's 2012 patron, the award-winning designer was tasked with creating a dress for model and VogueTV presenter Jade Parfitt to wear in the initiative's latest campaign, which was shot at the Household Cavalry Barracks in Knightsbridge. The Fashion for the Brave Union Jack dress drew inspiration from the Diamond Jubilee as well as Britain's storied military history and was later auctioned for charity.
