Last night London College of Fashion BA Fashion Design graduates showcased their creations at an exclusive catwalk show.
Hosted at The Yard Shoreditch in London’s East End, viewers were treated to twenty-seven graduate collections by womenswear, menswear, tailoring, jewelry and surface textiles designers.
London College of Fashion is one of the world’s leading fashion education centers and is one of six colleges that comprise the University of the Arts London – a globally renowned art and design university. Over half of the collections shown were collaborations between several graduate designers, such as womenswear designers working with surface textile designers to create hybrid graduate collections.
BA Fashion Design Technology student Alexis Housden won the Collection of the Year award for his rock and roll yet effeminate menswear collection. Other favorite collections came from womenswear graduates, Christina Tiran and Rebecca Morter, and sisters Nikita and Tina Sutradhar, both studying Fashion Design Technology: Womenswear
The London College of Fashion BA show officially ends this year’s series of London graduate shows.
