Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton

Emerging Designers Fashion Fashion Design Graduate Fashion Week

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton - Erebus

As always, there was a lot of strong talent coming from the University of Brighton this year, from totally wearable collections to some more inspired, conceptual designs.

Sophia Mingoia

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Sophia Mingoia - Erebus

Sophia's collection was classic with a twist. I loved the sleek corsets and didn't even mind the lampshade accessories.

Jazz Read

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Jazz Read - Erebus

Like many of the collections this week, Jazz's collection was just a small step away from wearable. The sculptural sheer white tops were great, and some of the pieces had some glitter filled sacks. Even the pleated structure of the pants above was superb.

Sam Snow

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Sam Snow - Erebus

I loved the fabric choices in Sam's Victorian ruffle filled collection, all the way down to the shoes.

Steph Davies

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Steph Davies - Erebus

While Steph's shapes were nothing out of the ordinary, her choice of fabrics and prints were wonderful.

Lucy Charters

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Lucy Charters - Erebus

I think we all know by now that pink is probably one of my least favourite colours, however, the silhouettes and movement of this collection were alright. Honestly, didn't really get the party hats.

Sam Bayles

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Sam Bayles - Erebus

While putting men in lace and velour wasn't new this week, there was something interesting about Sam's Castaway-esque collection. Perhaps with a little less destruction in the knitwear and those pieces would be totally wearable.

Hannah Attalah

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Hannah Attalah - Erebus

If you've ever been to Atlantic City, New Jersey, this collection might look a little familiar. Hannah's collection is perfect for the classy older lady hitting up those casinos.

Amelia Cullen

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Amelia Cullen - Erebus

Amelia was taking a play from the book of the Belgian greats with her collection of slightly unfinished, slightly imperfect, slightly off kilter pieces.

Ellie Carless

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Ellie Carless - Erebus

I'm not entirely sure what all of these pieces are saying, so it's a little difficult to discern the message, but Ellie's mostly sherbet coloured collection was on trend-

Ryan Brockbank

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Ryan Brockbank - Erebus

Ryan was another designer nominated for Best of Graduate Fashion Week. While his designs were fairly simple overall, it was a nice and welcome update to traditional menswear.

Tamara Henrikson

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Tamara Henrikson - Erebus

Jane Goodall comes to mind when I see this collection. The natural palette and forgiving and voluminous silhouettes would be perfect for that woman in her 40's and older.

Martina Simeonova

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Martina Simeonova - Erebus

The chevron pattern detailing was a nice touch, adding a bit of interest to this bright, athletic collection.

James Parker

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton James Parker - Erebus

Now I'm usually not a fan when a designer puts their name all over their pieces, but I didn't mind in this collection. James' girls looked like futuristic femme fatales in metallic primary colours. This was another collection I would have judged to be one of the Best of Graduate Fashion Week.

Ibbi Abbassi

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Ibbi Abbassi - Erebus

There were A LOT of ruffles in Ibbi's collection, though what was interesting is that she mainly used men's shirting fabric.

Soley Johannsdottir

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Soley Johannsdottir - Erebus

Soley's collection was another with adventurer details and inspiration, though this was much more understated than most. 

Tannaz Falahatzadeh

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Tannaz Falahatzadeh  - Erebus

Everything about this collection seems to juxtapose man and woman, from the fabric choices to the men's style skirt and cropped double breasted jacket though to these (very strange) wigs.

Alice Henfrey

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Alice Henfrey - Erebus

I loved the swimsuit style pieces in this collection as the shapes were not something you see everyday.

Elliot Wynn

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Elliot Wynn - Erebus

At first, I wasn't really into this collection but when I looked through the images again, I actually kind of like it. The last piece in the collection was interesting, as there was a flag (similar to the one above) which continued on to be the train of a coat. 

Olivia Bradley

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Olivia Bradley - Erebus

Looks like a lot of people have been watching Dallas and Dynasty reruns lately. Olivia's was another collection with over-the-top accentuations with some very glitzy styling.

Alice Winzar

Graduate Fashion Week 2017: University of Brighton Alice Winzar - Erebus

In the look book shots for this collection, the pieces were shot on a black woman and the colour of this upholstery fabric worked beautifully with skin tone! On the runway, the pieces still looked great, a nice mix of some simple pieces with those with more bold shapes.

Here, you can take a look at the 2015 and 2016 University of Brighton Shows
