GFW 25: Edinburgh

Emerging Designers Fashion Fashion Design Graduate Fashion Week

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art - Erebus

Like last year, Edinburgh's show was short and sweet with only 13 designers showcasing their collections. Before the show got underway, we were treated to an operatic fashion film with Hellenic sculptures and architecture by Ania Urbanowska. While there were only a few designers, they encapsulated many of the trends we saw throughout the week and had some very strong talent.

Matilda Barrowcliff

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Matilda Barrowcliff - Erebus

Matilda says one tenet of her ethos is "beautiful chaos" and you can definitely see it in this collection. Besides the fact we love the palette, each garment was striking and told a story as it came down the runway.

Natalie Hellevik

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Natalie Hellevik - Erebus

The prints and embroidery throughout Natalie's collection were very feminine and well crafted.

Fiona Cartmel

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Fiona Cartmel - Erebus

Fiona's collection was very dramatic and full of texture. Her use of what appeared to be scraps throughout was done in a very interesting way. She was the winner of the inaugural Vivienne Westwood Ethical Award.

Lyndsay Welch

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Lyndsay Welch - Erebus

It was great to see the way Lyndsay added the feminine elements of the flowing pink fabric to the tough camouflage. 

Holly Lord

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Holly Lord - Erebus

Holly's collection comprised of almost every major trend we saw throughout the week; turquoise and metallic leather, eye prints, dusty rose were in a lot of collections this week though we love how she managed to incorporate them.

Alice Robinson

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Alice Robinson - Erebus

On first glance, this collection looks a bit busy and isn't one we would normally go for but you have to get a closer look. The way she printed on the fabric over the addition of rigid circles gave a really unique look.

Jonathan Preston-Moore

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Jonathan Preston-Moore - Erebus

A couple of terms we overheard used describing this collection were "toy box" and "Buzz Lightyear" and you can see why. He was one of the winners of the British Fashion Council Graduate Preview Day awards.

Anna Madelena Currie

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Anna Madelena Currie - Erebus

When I saw this collection, my first thought was "The Baddest Bitch," this idea of the female boss in hip hop, so when I learned that Anna takes her inspiration from gang culture and female empowerment, we can see she got her message across.

Som Kerdsiri

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Som Kerdsiri - Erebus

The paisley print throughout, even on the leather, was striking. Som's collection had kind of a vintage Prada feel to it.

Lorn Jean

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Lorn Jean - Erebus

Lorn's collection was one of our absolute favourites of the entire week, and we were not alone. This collection on the ICG Accessories Award as well as the Boohoo.com Fashion Innovation Award. Upon closer inspection of each of these pieces, you can see just how intricate each one of them was. Every single stitch and stud was carefully placed and the result was so impressive.

Alice Firman

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Alice Firman - Erebus

Alice's collection was a little bit rock 'n' roll with some interesting silhouettes.

Megan Jane Mitchell

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Megan Jane Mitchell - Erebus

Megan's eccentric collection was a not to the painting styles of the 1970's.

Rhys J. P. McKenna

Graduate Fashion Week 2016 Edinburgh College of Art Rhys J. P. McKenna - Erebus

Rhys' collection was an interesting one. There were some more rigid shapes with what looked to be camouflage, but was actually lace. There were also some interesting silhouettes in a sort of street style. We absolutely loved the coat that closed out the show.
