Graduate Fashion week 2011


Yep that’s little me lurking in Clare Potts‘ HUB project for Fashion Promotion at UCLan

Epsom UCA Promotion and Imaging portfolios and Magazine by Sophia Sabados

Salt Beachwear by lovely Rosa Falkenstein from Northumbria

Skull headwear by Daisy Shayler-Webb graduated from Fashion Design Innovation at Leeds

This year was my 3rd year visiting Graduate Fashion Week and it was a slightly scary surprise to see how strong the Fashion Promotion students were this year! The Epsom UCA stylists were fantastic! (looks like I should have stayed there for my degree…) At the moment, I’m studying a similar course to these graduates so I’m sensing strong competition in the future! Still, it was wonderful to browse brilliant portfolios, professional looking magazines and friend’s projects. Daisy’s above caught my eye straight away – I recognised her masking tape and thick black letters a mile away from when I used to perve on her sketchbooks on my Foundation course. I got very excited over the fun retro swimwear above – I’ve never seen anything like it and would definitely buy from Salt if the price was right! Wouldn’t you? It was lovely to chat to the designer Rosa who told me all about the processes. Lastly, lovely Clare showed me her amazing project which I ‘modelled’ in – a bloggers and students image and info network/source. Amazing work and I must say, a fantastic opportunity to style spot – everyone at Earls Court looked fantastic! Next year it’ll be my work there. *Gulp!*
