The last few weeks have been the most exciting time in the fashion calendar with Graduate Fashion Week. Its a time of great innovation and the birthing of the future’s fashion greats! With over 20 shows in total and lots going on in my life atm I sadly missed a lot of it but what I managed to catch was mesmerising. My first show; UCA Rochester, courtesy of Lewis and Leigh PR, set the bar high and I clearly had an enhanced view 😉 !

Graduate Fashion Week 2014 and Exciting Blog News

IMG_20140601_190552547

I’ve spent the past few days in my element discovering emerging and new designers at Wolf & Badger boutique, who I’ve just started guest blogging for, and at Graduate Fashion Week which ended with a bang today. I’ve had a break from my blog as have been busy writing for one of London’s finest boutiques, according to Vogue. However I had to take the time to share the amazing talent spotted at GFW. I’ll also be sharing what I’ve been up to for the last few months soon as its been pretty exciting times- a blogathon is coming after my holiday to Atlanta this Friday! For now I’d like to share my highlights from the UCA Rochester graduate fashion week show and the exhibition. I’m always amazed at the extent of design talent abiding in the UK and its great to see stars from some  some of the unsung places outside of the capital. As a Londoner it easy to forget that creativity is alive and well in other parts of the UK and often in the most unexpected places. I’m truly grateful to Graduate Fashion Week for an eye opening  experience.

Never ending talent; Graduate Fashion Week

IMAG0590

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.
