I had a very exciting start to the week as I attended the second day of Graduate Fashion Week at Earls Court and watched the highly anticipated international show. The show was a collection of designers from twenty fashion schools from various corners of the earth. Its a great concept and a really cool experience. I’ll always be biased and in thinking that the UK as a lot of the world’s best design talent but was interested to see what the rest of the world had to offer. The show was anything but boring and was an eclectic mix of wearable to not so wearable and wacky styles. As expected the Scandinavian and Japanese designers were some of my favourites but I also loved the collections from Esmod Berlin which were a million times more edgy than most established German fashion brands such as Escada. Here are some of my highlights.
Mimar Sinan Turkey
Istituto Marangoni Milan
Shih Chien Taiwan- this designer, Angus Chiang, won! Still reminds me of a psychedelic / fururistic cookie monster
