‘Sustainability; it's very important. That’s what I'm here to do, to research and educate myself and then educate others, through COLLUSION.’
First spotted in an i-D article featuring Newcastle’s coolest kids, lens-based creative Lilly Thompson is vegan, 17 and finishing her A-levels. When asked who inspires her, she names nineteenth century poet Arthur Rimbaud, who spent his teenage years living as a runaway in France. Another source of inspiration for Lilly are emerging subcultures in the north of England; her Northern heritage forms a crucial part of her identity today. When she’s finished college, Lilly will embark on an adventure of her own, to attend university in London. Lilly’s collaboration with COLLUSION highlights the importance of vegan friendly clothing, propelling her further yet into fashion’s fight against animal cruelty.
