Graduate Denim Talent: Saskia Schijen and Hannah Rigby

It’s always great to keep an eye on fashion graduates as their energy and creativity can spark new ideas and inspiration. London graduates Saskia Schijen and Hannah Rigby stood out at graduate fashion week with their fierce all-denim looks.

Saskia Schijen played with proportion for her RCA final collection: skinny activewear tops were teamed with upsized and belted denim pants. A tight color palette of white and indigo created a clinical and fresh look, while bleached laundries gave the collection its streetwear edge. Her contact details can be found on the RCA website.

Epsom graduate, Hannah Rigby went down a more girly route with her total denim runway, but proportion play was still key with  full, sculptural skirts and exaggerated shoulders.  Surface destruction embellished seams and panels with light, frayed weft. You can see Rigby’s show on Youtube.
