Mr. 6 is a brand of unisex fashion accessories created by Alexis Law, a BA(Hons) in Design (Industrial & Product) year 2 student, in her Fashion Accessories class held last autumn.
In the collection, she has created 3 sets of bow ties, bow necklaces and suspenders. Inspired by the fashion style “nerd” or “geek chic”, the designer took checker, the most significant pattern of the style, as one of the design elements and leather as the main material to give the design a more sophisicated look. She also paid attention to the details of accessories, like adding buckles and buttons on suspenders to make them adjustable.
Currently, Alexis has turned the project into real business and sells the products online. She launched an online shop in her own blog – Miss 6 Design Blog, and opened a facebook page to keep her customers update of Mr. 6’s news.
The Fashion Accessories class was held in fall of 2010. Tutors included Ernesto Spicciolato, Roger Ball and Michael Leung.
