Hot on the heels of Graduate Fashion Week, this off schedule show is one of the best. When it comes to graduate collections, we adore the freedom and flair. No designer ever gets to spend SO much time on one collection, so the attention to detail is truly next level.
There was so much to see, decadence, innovation, and delicate style. This was truly the future of fashion. Keep reading to see our picks from the Winchester School of Art Graduate Show.
Shine bright like a diamond, Journeaux created a melange of shiny delights with her collection. We loved the choice of fabrics, which user lights looked amazing. This was matched with bold silhouettes which are not for the feint-hearted, but are still incredibly wearable and versatile.
We know who we are turning to come party season!
This collection had a soft feminine feeling that filled us with joy. Elegant yet supple day dresses made their way down the runway, in a effortlesss way. Not only did this collection look good, but it had comfortable written all over it.
We loved the cohesion and evolution of Osgood’s thoughts, which really toed the line of wearability and excitement. Who wouldn’t want a cloud like cardigan in a contrasting colour- we do.
This was another boldest understated collection, with diaphanous shapes with feather detailing. We loved the jumpsuit with the cape, the puffball dress, and the fun chaps paired with featured detailed body!
Using a very neutral colour palette meant that the bold shapes still look elegant and covetable. Almost in some cases bridal, which is a lucrative market to break into.
Knitwear always features heavily in graduate collections, as a medium it is not overly used in boundary pushing fashion. So innovation is always seen in graduate work, and we adored what Davis did with her yarn.
Layering in a fresh and exciting way, in bold colours that are so perfect for now. We never thought we would be saying this, but we want a knitted cami dress!
This was a bold and elegant collection. With impactful shaping, this was a unique take on women’s fashion. There are only positive things to say, with rich colours enhancing the amazing shapes. We loved the nod to 80s power dressing, but overall it felt very firmly in 2019.
The work that went into the structured pieces looked impeccable, this was done to such a high standard we were blown away.
This collection had a certain something about it, that we adored. Refrencing a very modern feeling that we couldn’t quite put our fingers on, this collection felt very new and covetable. The muted colour palette allowed the shaping and cut to take centre stage. The hats were wonderful, as were the models.
This was a true head to toe success.
Prairie-chic is a phrase that we use in fashion to much, but this collection really was Prairie-chic. There was a certain vintage feel to the collection in the cut and colour palette. There was modernity too, with the en-vogue bucket hat, rich gingham prints and edgy layering.
This collection had a unique nature that made sure it stood out.
