The Middlesex University Fashion Design and Fashion Textiles graduates have been working away getting their final collections ready to be shown to the world at the Middlesex University Graduate show held at The Vinyl Factory in Soho. The collections have been chosen by Kim Howells and her team of industry professionals, including Kylie Griffiths (Fashion Editor-At-Large at Vice), Ashley Deverell (Marketing Manager at K-Swiss) and Zowie Broach (Head of Fashion at the Royal College of Art). The final selection is formed of 16 of the university’s leading fashion graduates in both design and textiles, all with an impressive mix of skills, techniques and aesthetics. Any of them could be the next Boudicca or Christopher Raeburn, two of the university’s most famous alumni.
For the third time, the Live Catwalk Communication Campaign has been organised by a team of Fashion Communication and Styling students together with Middlesex’s fashion team to showcase the best and brightest of the design students at the university. There will be both womenswear and menswear, with a great assortment of styles, colours, fabrics, skills, techniques and influences being demonstrated. Flora Yun’s perfect pastel floral suits and Stephanie Akpakly’s sweeping rich moss-green garments showcase the diverse range of influences and styles in menswear, whilst Kelsey Dykes’ scrawling prints in a myriad of blues and Lee Duckworth’s floor-sweeping navy garment is only the beginning of what the womenswear collections contain. These graduates tick all the boxes.
Show Date: Friday 3rd June 2016
Venue: The Vinyl Factory, 16-18 Marshall Street, Soho, London W1F 7BE
