Ska music, deformity & androgyne at the Graduate Fashion Show 2017

By Sarah Packer

Running as part of our annual Degree Shows, our BA (Hons) Fashion students unveiled their innovative and diverse designs on the catwalk for our Graduate Fashion Show 2017.

With subjects ranging from hoarding habits and deformity to gender neutrality and the relationship between art and fashion, the show was a fantastic opportunity for fashion enthusiasts, aspiring designers, industry, press, and friends and family to see our students’ innovative and contemporary fashion designs on the catwalk at a professionally-run show.

Hosted at the award-winning Red House with half a dozen photographers and filmmakers, the Graduate Fashion Show received a big crowd across all its four shows all vying to see the creations of these emerging designers as they break through into one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK.
