Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University

Emerging Designers Fashion Fashion Design Graduate Fashion Week

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University - Erebus

Kingston University is usually the school with the strongest menswear collections, which consisted of half of their show this year, a greater concentration than any other school.

Check out the show from 2016 and then see how the Class of '17 stacked up.

Zexi Yu

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Zexi Yu - Erebus

Zexi was one of the nominees for Best of Graduate Fashion Week with this feminised womenswear collection of sherbet colours and corsets coupled with reimagined mens suiting pieces.

Kate Clark

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Kate Clark - Erebus

Ok, so I generally hate when designers stick stuffed toys to their clothes (See Nicki Minaj in her Marco Marco outfit), but I can honestly say that off all the times this has been done, Kate's was the best. It was like this was designed for a little girl's ideal play-wedding.

Sun-Ah Lee

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Sun-Ah Lee - Erebus

Sun-Ah's collection is perfect for the British summertime, with some standard urban attire with these translucent ponchos.

Xeuzhi Li

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Xeuzhi Li - Erebus

This was definitely on trend this year, taking traditional men's suiting shapes and fabric and turning them around, upside down, inside out and the like. Having just come back from Paris Fashion Week, I've seen this as well as the extended sleeves in a fair few of the collections in some fashion.

Emily Clark

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Emily Clark - Erebus

Emily's collection landed her a nomination for Best of Graduate Fashion Week. Her urban collection was one of the more interesting mixes of street style, Asian influence and prints inspired by different artists.

Lottie Brown

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Lottie Brown - Erebus

Lottie's collection was very hobo-chic, with the models walking in oversized and layered menswear, how a hobo wears everything they own.

Francesca Cook

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Francesca Cook - Erebus

Francesca reimagined the old schoolboy wardrobe for her collection with great prints and considered details.

James Anderson

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University James Anderson - Erebus

James' choice of colour palette was very on trend and his work with pleats was outstanding.

Loulou Hicks

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Loulou Hicks - Erebus

Loulou took the oversized street wear trend and blew it up. I'll assume the codes have a meaning, though I'm not sure what, but they added appeal to the pieces along with this crackled print on the shorts.

Yujin Ahn

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Yujin Ahn - Erebus

Yujin's was another of my favourite collections of the week in the sense that it is totally wearable and one of the best athletic-inspired collections. The geometric patterns work well with the fabric to create great garments.

Lydia Ferguson

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Lydia Ferguson - Erebus

Lydia's African tribal warrior inspired collection was a little more muted than most, with the main bodies in simple black and white patterns leaving the loud colours for the accents.

Tara Khemiri

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Tara Khemiri - Erebus

Being a slow-fashion enthusiast, I appreciate where Tara was going with her collection of entirely recycled pieces, mainly T-shirts.

Omid Taherkhani

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Omid Taherkhani- Erebus

Omid's collection brilliantly straddled the line between being risky without being ridiculous. The silhouettes were strong, the colour combinations worked and the texture was amazing.

Haemin Lee

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Haemin Lee - Erebus

Similar to Lottie's collection above, Haemin's had a lot of layers. Individually, though, quite a few pieces in the collection could be commercial.

Charlie Bond

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Charlie Bond - Erebus

Here is another collection that looks like, and probably was, it is made from tents and I actually kind of liked it. You couldn't tell from the images, but one of the pieces from up close looked like it was made from fish leather.

Ningyao Zhang

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Ningyao Zhang - Erebus

Many of Ningyao's pieces looked quite similar, going a different route with her menswear style collection and mixing it with some Asian influences. And you can't miss all of the peonies.

Kasubika Chola

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Kasubika Chola - Erebus

Kasubika was another nominee for Best of Graduate Fashion Week and managed to have British fashion royalty Caryn Franklin showing off their work or upcycled denim on the runway. The rest of the models were all carrying bags of different kinds of rice, not entirely sure what that was about.

Evanjali Reddy

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Kingston University Evanjali Reddy - Erebus

Evanjali's ladies seemed to me like badass Bond villains. The aesthetic is not to my taste but I really appreciated the story, or at least the story that I saw.

Check out the show from 2016.
