So here’s my last post on graduate fashion week and am glad am writing it a little while after the event finished as its refreshing to remember just how amazing the showcase was. My last day was particularly exciting because industry veteran Colin McDowell interviewed one of the most iconic UK based designers, Mary Katranzou. It was great to learn more about her background and learn interesting facts like her mother being an interior designer and owning a factory in Greece. Also her structural designs are no doubt influenced by her year spent studying architecture before she pursued a career in fashion.
Once again the talent from graduates seemed never ending and I got lost in a world of funky prints, quirky shapes, bold colours, varied textures, surreal shoes and even found a cool magazine created by students. I truly believe I witnessed some of the best designs I’ve ever seen at Graduate Fashion Week and I look forward to hearing about the graduates I met in the future as I hope and expect that a lot of them will definitely be making their mark in the fashion industry.
