“Blink” attended the BA Degree show for Ravensbourne University last Thursday in the old Truman Brewery’s ‘Boiler House’. This was a showcase for 29 students graduating from the womenswear, menswear and fashion textiles courses. We’ve chosen our six, quite diverse favorites from the catwalk show.
Agnes Sarosi’s use of strong colours and a fresh take on tailoring context created a very powerful look. Bobby Abley’s very experimental mixing of S&M leather strapping in kiddy colours with teddy-bear detailing was almost scary. Carly Brown’s collection was all about the shoulders and abbreviated variations on classic cuts in pastel colors. Jess Norman’s collection quite a bourgeois leisure look. Jessica Holmes collection was a modern take on a prim ladylike look. Last but not least, Rachel Hall’s knitwear was just stunningly colorful and in a scale that almost swamped the models.
We also captured a couple of shots of the very stylish crowd.
Graduate Fashion Week is fast turning into a major event on the fashion calendar in London. Its the opportunity for universities to showcase the cream of their graduating crop. Aside from the catwalk presentations there is a static exhibition featuring the work of around 50 different universities from around the UK. We headed down to Earls Court for a bit of style spotting and to check out the exhibition space. Thanks Asta and Amy for your help on pulling this post together.
