Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University

Emerging Designers Fashion Fashion Design Graduate Fashion Week

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University - Erebus

There was a wide array of talent and skills on display from this year's students from Birmingham City University at Graduate Fashion Week. 

Pengyu Wang

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Pengyu Wang - Erebus

This was an interesting one. I really liked the translucent puffer jackets with the tiny foam balls and the fur, which were a theme of this collection.

Jingyi Lin

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Jingyi Lin - Erebus

When the designers think of everything literally down to the shoes, you know their collection is very considered. While some of the additions were a bit odd it was a great collection overall.

Jemma Farley

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Jemma Farley - Erebus

A full-on denim collection is very rarely as strong as Jemma's. The silhouettes were amazing and feminine. There were some subtle bleached details hidden inside the garments.

Stephanie Hutchins

My first thought was that I loved this collection without the accessories, that was until I learned that they were 3D printed and they perfectly matched the garments. Without the accessories, though, this collection is completely commercial.

Monika Jauneikaite

These banded arms are a trend that seems to be continuing. I really liked the these casual yet classy pieces. There was just a slight touch of femininity in the styling.

Maisie Bruffell

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Maisie Bruffell - Erebus

The silhouettes in this collection were quite substantial, giving strength to the femininity of the palette and overall style.

Rebecca More

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Rebecca More - Erebus

I'm not always a huge fan of the puffer jacket, but I have to be honest and say that this collection by Rebecca, especially this coat, are the best I've seen in quite a while. She proves that form and function can coexist.

Shadi Brown

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Shadi Brown - Erebus

Shadi took the school uniform and gave it a facelift. Working with patterns like houndstooth can be tricky, but she pulled it off.

Daisy Earle

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Daisy Earle - Erebus

Like Pengyu's collection to start the show, there were some more transparent puffer pocket but the ombre blue feathers were a remarkable addition to this cold weather collection.

Nailah Iqbal

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Nailah Iqbal - Erebus

Nailah's was one of the most overtly girly collections of the week. Every piece was expertly crafted and her silhouettes were bold but flattering.

Hannah Walker

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Hannah Walker - Erebus

While some of the exaggerated details, especially on the sleeves of the leather jackets, were great for the runway, though without them, this collection would be completely commercial.

Xiaochu Meng

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Xiaochu Meng - Erebus

Xiaochu's was another collection with Japanese inspiration, with the origami shapes, cherry blossom print and kimonos. The origami pieces were definitely among the stronger of such collections this week.

Sean O’Connor

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Sean O'Connor - Erebus

There were quite a lot of pleats in this slightly feminine take on menswear. The blocked colours were well placed in these flowing silhouettes.

Elizabeth O’Connor

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Elizabeth O'Connor - Erebus

Elizabeth's collection was sleek overall. Again, as with quite a few collections, take away a few of the details and you've got a wearable collection.

Meng Han

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Meng Han - Erebus

I loved the negative space with the fur in this fabulous ski trip collection.

Shafia Begum

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Shafia Begum - Erebus

Following one of the trends of the week, Shafia added a lot of bags to accentuate her pieces. Beyond this little detail, I found her collection to be another welcome update to urban attire.

Elisha Bharaj

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Elisha Bharaj - Erebus

I absolutely LOVE this collection. Beyond the expertly crafted, very chic garments, the sculpted body pieces, pleats and ruffles put this collection on an entirely new level for me. Were I to be judging, this would have definitely landed a spot in the Best of Graduate Fashion Week.

Pravjot Sambhi

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Pravjot Sambhi - Erebus

Yep, more bags everywhere. Pravjot's collection looked like something you'd wear if you knew you were going to be gone a while. The models also seemed to have a hard time walking, so this is definitely not for everyday.

Thomas Cox

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Thomas Cox - Erebus

Thomas' shapes in his doodle print loungewear were definitely a throwback. 

Rebekah Brennan

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Rebekah Brennan - Erebus

Rebekah's negligee and evening wear collection had some very strong shapes and had details we've seen throughout the week.

Elina Pagett

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Elina Pagett - Erebus

Elina's girly and frilly collection was overtly and unabashedly sexual, with pretty saucy phrases on the badges affixed to the garments.

Georgina Jenkins

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Georgina Jenkins - Erebus

Georgina's was another collection who took suiting and added a casual twist. The fur, knitwear and stripes all worked together brilliantly.

Yinan Wu

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Birmingham City University Yinan Wu - Erebus

Yinan's sculpted pleat work were very well executed and created stunning extra dimension to the pieces in her collection.

Take a look at the 2015 and 2016 shows from Birmingham City University.
