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.
It was very interesting to see how Luke managed to combine modern streetwear in floral prints with more traditional looking German-inspired style.
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'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's collection was the perfect wardrobe for the future female executive. The metallics mixed with the printed silks were a strangely brilliant mix.
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.
This was a modern take on the 70's anti-war style going pretty pastel pink.
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 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's pieces were inspired by jellyfish, incorporating pastel crocheted fabrics with holographic plastic reminiscent of mother of pearl.
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
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.
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.
The animal print camouflage was an interesting touch in Ellen's nature-inspired collection.
Claire I Yearwood
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's collection was a strange but satisfying mix of femininity, with the corseting and fur, with inspiration from Greek soldiers.
These nature printed silk were quite the professional look and they moved well coming down the runway.
Amy Dawn Ralph
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.
