Nottingham Trent University Graduate Fashion Week 2016-2017 Collection
This week, after a few amazing Finnish Fashion Days filled, I flew back to London, just in time their collections present at Graduate Fashion Week to see some of the British freshest talents. I have to again be a guest of Nottingham Trent University and was blown away as easy to say.
What breeds was an amazing amount of talent this university that also proved by three students that passed in the final, of which Jackson Chloe and knitwear designer Kendall Baker was awarded for their refined hard work and imagination. Personally, I was mesmerized by Olivia Barclay and its innovative use of layers and exploration of silhouettes, where the balance of male and female came together in a harmony that I could see me. Laura Tollervey was another favorite, who played with volume and layering in a very ready-to-wear fashion. I was struck in particular by its material combinations. Yet another designer noteworthy was Morta Rapalyte and her take on fat pale colors: perfect presentation as hard and soft to balance when it comes to materials. I could go on and on about these young talents, but I am sure that we will hear very soon more of these graduates.
