The techniques used, in prints, silhouettes and finishing, from the grads at University of Central Lancashire were absolutely stunning. There were so many talents coming from this university that is was difficult to find a favourite. Keep reading to see what we're talking about.
We loved the natural appeal of this collection, both in the colour palette and the rosettes and added details throughout.
It is not easy to create such structured pieces with delicate fabrics, but that is exactly what Charlotte managed. There was no room for error in her sheer garments, which proved her technical skills.
There was a lot to look at in Sana's collection and for the most part, it only added to the appeal.
The gorgeous array of pinks were made even more interesting with Samantha's amazing pleating and draping throughout the collection.
Amy Ward took her inspiration from 1920's night wear and turned into something modern and wearable in public. The added garter suspender appliqué was a nice touch.
Rebecca's collection was another with inspiration from aviation, it almost looked like some were inspired by those flying squirrel suits. But the colour palette and print details set her collection apart from the rest.
There were so many technical details of this collection that were stunning. From the perfect stitching to the silhouettes and abstract painted details, everything about this collection was just brilliant.
Again, black and white is always a plus. There was a bit of '70's disco glam to this collection all the while being completely commercial.
Tatiana's collection was a subtle hint to African prints and colours done in a very tasteful way.
Chloe's collection was a very feminine, very bright, very sporty collection.
The bright colours were accentuated by these perfectly crafted ruffles.
We cannot say enough about how stunning these prints on these absolutely amazing garments were coming down the runway. While there were so many great collections from these grads, Nicola was definitely one at the very top of the list.
Jasmin calls this collection Trash to Treasure, using a mix of new and used fabrics. Some of these garments were stunning and very wearable.
The first thing we thought of when Yaya's collection was coming down the runway was the 1980's show Dynasty. There was something about this collection that was a slightly over-the-top glam appeal about it.
The high collars and the skilled deconstructed construction of these denim pieces were a favourite of ours.
for some reason, Katie's collection made us think of the different stages in the life of Wendy from Peter Pan (in a good way).
We loved the modern take on the uniforms of the working class manual labourers.
We wrote LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all over our notes for this collection. This was an absolutely stunning collection from every point of view. The texture of the stops, the ombre chiffon skirts, the dramatic use of black, literally everything about this collection was jaw dropping.
Carrie's was another stunning black and white collection which used the ombre effect to stunning ends.
