Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores - Erebus

This was the first year sitting for the Liverpool John Moores university show at Graduate Fashion Week and it was great to see yet another set of amazing designs from some very talented students. Here is your front row seat to this year's show.

Luke McGeagh

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Luke McGeagh - Erebus

It was very interesting to see how Luke managed to combine modern streetwear in floral prints with more traditional looking German-inspired style.

Charlotte McCann

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Charlotte McCann - Erebus

The neoprene and nylon were quite typical of modern streetwear, but the oversized shapes and styling (especially with the fork motif) were very different.

Lindsay McCavish

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Lindsay McCavish - Erebus

Lindsay's take on this year's recurring theme of taking inspiration from Asia was not so on-the-nose but very strong, both in the prints and the silhouettes.

Nic Stoddart

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Nic Stoddart - Erebus

Nic's collection was the perfect wardrobe for the future female executive. The metallics mixed with the printed silks were a strangely brilliant mix.

Loren King

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Loren King - Erebus

Loren was another student making her political statement with her garments. This collection, with the backdrop of Kanye West singing, saw "Dump Trump" with some Union Jack's and European Union flags with a touch of Scottish tartan.

Sarah Davies

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Sarah Davies - Erebus

This was a modern take on the 70's anti-war style going pretty pastel pink.

Becky Brown

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Becky Brown - Erebus

Becky Brown's psychedelic mix of prints and colours with this technique of adding volume, which we've seen throughout the week, were not really the type of designs I normally appreciate but for some reason I kind of liked it.

Jo Freake

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Jo Freake - Erebus

Jo was definitely inspired by Little Red Riding Hood as her pieces were emblazoned with related phrases and the girls were walking to the song Big Bad Wolf. The result was a collection that was girlish without being sweet.

Lyndsey Gillett

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Lyndsey Gillett - Erebus

Lyndsey's pieces were inspired by jellyfish, incorporating pastel crocheted fabrics with holographic plastic reminiscent of mother of pearl.

Ishbel Al-Jorani

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Ishbel Al-Jorani - Erebus

Ishbel's pleat work was amazing! This was another of those collections where we could see a slightly toned down version in every high-end department store. 

Lauren Sian Black

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Lauren Sian Black - Erebus

Some of the student's political statements were more subtle, Sian was definitely not one of them. Besides this very obvious Black Lives Matter sign, one of the T-shirts evoked Eric Garner with "Hands Up Don't Shoot" along with some other key slogans.

Beth Wooley

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Beth Wooley - Erebus

The pieces from Beth's collection had some alpine landscapes and motifs and her use of the feathers here was a lot stronger than some other explorer-themed collections.

Ellen Reed

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Ellen Reed - Erebus

The animal print camouflage was an interesting touch in Ellen's nature-inspired collection.

Claire I Yearwood

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Claire I Yearwood - Erebus

Like Lindsay's collection above, the Asian inspiration in this collection was obvious but not over the top. Each piece was stunning and her use of laser cutting to add dimension to some of the pieces was very inspired.

Jack Shelbourne

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Jack Shelbourne - Erebus

Jack's collection was a strange but satisfying mix of femininity, with the corseting and fur, with inspiration from Greek soldiers.

Rebecca Conlin

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Rebecca Conlin - Erebus

These nature printed silk were quite the professional look and they moved well coming down the runway.

Amy Dawn Ralph

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: Liverpool John Moores Amy Dawn Ralph - Erebus

There were quite a few utility belts coming down with Amy's colleciton but this piece was definitely one of my favourites. The print with the pleats really worked with the shape and the check of the top half.
