Fashion Strikes Back by Sufiyeh Hadian.
I was a little unclear whether Fashion Design, buy Styling and Promotion that I saw on display were all part of the same course as I whipped through the upper halls of Free Range, web but I’ve decided to cover them in one blog nonetheless.
I liked Rosie Thompson-Agnew‘s At Your Disposal, which featured brightly screen-printed luxury consumer goods. I guess this is a commentary on rampant consumerism – always an intriguing thing to tackle as someone studying fashion promotion.
At the other end of the spectrum Sufiyeh Hadian had spray painted and encrusted some familiar Star Wars characters. I have no idea what it all means but I was most amused by these models of Darth Vadar and C-3PO. Fashion Strikes Back indeed.
From the fashion design on display the work of these three caught my eye:
Elina Mourmouris has created lovely wide shapes for shoulders and legs combined with bright splash prints.
Abigail Lee has also gone for the baggy look but in splodgy monochrome
Michaela Phillips did wide sleeves and splashy green with black and greys on a very appealing dress
Louise Johnson opted for a spotty approach in oversized shirt form.
But. Not one website between them. Gah. I hope to do a bit of teaching at Middlesex University next year so here’s hoping I get a chance to talk a bit about the importance of an online presence. I have a feeling that I am going to be writing about this a lot when reviewing the graduate shows this year. Again.
