Daniel Pascal Tanner

Committed to championing the young designers of the future, we continually support emerging talent – enabling others to discover their exceptional creations. Spanning progressive collaborations, pop-up exhibitions, exclusive launches and #LibertyOpenCall, Liberty Discovers is a platform for the talent we believe in.

Following on from the success of his graduate collection - also made from and supported by Liberty Fabrics - London College of Fashion, UAL graduate, Daniel Pascal Tanner’s SS19 collection was inspired by John Thomas’ 19th century portraits of Welsh folk women. Debuted at London Fashion Week, the collection celebrated the idea of sisterhood and strength, juxtaposing romantic silhouettes with surreal exaggerations. Pascal Tanner was inspired to shoot the looks against the backdrop of the Black Mountains in southeast Wales in an homage to the family histories shared with him by his grandmother about her own mother’s rural childhood – a reflection of the nostalgia and intimacy conjured by a Liberty print.
