Lauren Smith of Edinburgh college of Art picked up the George Gold award at the #GFW Gala on Wednesday. Her collection captured a dreamy palette of subtle blues, clean whites and pops of yellow, worked across an innovative silhouette, noting layering, off-kilter details and structured fabrications as key features – this girl is definitely one to watch.
Kirandeep Bassan of The University of Northampton showed a statement set of painterly prints in bold blues, sunny yellow, pumpkin and burnt reds worked across an east meets west fusion silhouette. These standout prints went on to win her the Textiles award at the #GFW Gala.
We revisited Chen Yu Wang of Ravensbourne’s collection at the #GFW Gala on Wednesday – we just can’t get enough of this 3D eyeball knit!
Closing the show at Bunka Fashion College, exaggerated proportions and intense print bring together the key trends of the show, Gothic and Futurism
Incredible 3d structured knitwear with cosmic style, Bunka Fashion College show
Dark, gothic elegant shapes reworked with multiple straps controlling volume and silhouettes. Another great design from the Bunka Fashion College show.
We visited the annual Bunka Fashion College open day in Tokyo for their fascinating show produced by students across all courses. Titled Energy Flow, this year’s show was divided into 10 different scenes, inspired by student illustrations. Here we see one of a range of futuristic architectural dresses with metallic geometric cutting and angular constructions.
In between shows at #MBFWMx, we caught up with Laura and Alejandra Laviada, the sisters behind Pantera, an accessories and homeware line that’s handmade in Mexico City. We love their use of exotic skins and animal prints. Check out more of their A/W 2012 collection here.
