Graduate Fashion Week in one of our favourite events in our calendars. This is a showcase of some of the best student fashion graduating this year.
We took our front row seat, and took it all in. Keep reading to see the second part of our Graduate Fashion Week coverage.
Amber Rawlins | Northampton University
The oversized silhouettes were the stars of this collection. Delicate rose motifs were contrasted with bold colour choices of purple, hot pink and emerald green.
Puff ball dresses have never looked so fresh.
Poppy Dowsing | Northampton University
We really loved this collection. It was really frilling (please pardon the pun!). It was bold and punchy, camp and kitschy, yet still incredibly wearable.
The colour palette was a 70s dream.
Eden Russel | UCA Epsom
Russell created an attention grabbing collection that we adored. Beautiful printed motifs made this collection look incredibly polished and well made.
Jade Rodgers | Plymouth College of Art
Inspired by their own experiences of being tall. They told us, that they never have the opportunity to look up at anyone, but that buildings offer that feeling to them. Thus the structures of buildings became a starting point.
Honey comb sleeves and diaphanous skirts encompassed the models. Using fabric manipulation this collection explored detialed shapes through structured separates.
Sophie Robinson | UCA Epsom
A masterful use of prints and techniques. This collection was full of incredible details that really absorbed us as an audience.
We love the crochet detail, digitally printed fabrics and overall 70s vibes.
Milan Flíček | Arts University Bournemouth
This menswear collection had it all. We adored the structure through tailoring in traditional ways, but finished in unexpected ways. With high attention to detail. This was contrasted with flowing shirting, and detailed knitwear that added soft sensuous shapes to the collection.
Flíček took menswear and made something that we haven’t seen before, which is commendable
Sian Robinson| Brighton University
This collection from Sian Robinson was incredibly confident and well executed. We loved the outerwear shapes reworked into wearable separates. The trench coat inspired dresses and jumpsuits were divine, and we really want this collection in our own wardrobes
Daisy Rawson | Arts University Bournemouth
This menswear collection was bright and refreshing. Featuring the bold silhouettes that have been dominating men’s fashion for a while now, but it was unique.
Mixing in striped structured knitwear and tropical motifs of flamingos, monstera and tigers. Rawson created a wearable collection that stood out, in what is a cramped market.
Vee Hayward | Brighton University
This collection was a monochromatic dream. With head to toe (literally) looks of deep inky blues and rich emerald greens. This menswear collection was intriguing.
The tailoring in this collection was exceptional, and was some of the best we have seen.
Sally Mankee| UCA Rochester
This collection was also very fun. We could see a very clear viewpoint from Mankee. The prints in this collection were the true stars.
Mixing antique vibes with cats. Even a Staffordshire-esque king Charles Spaniel on wheels. This was truly excellent.
