Ravensbourne is always something to look forward to during Graduate Fashion Week. The students here are not afraid to push the boundaries, and the sculpted pieces throughout the show this year are no exception.
Fatima's designs were an interesting mis of fabrics, something traditional with something more technical. She even thought about the styling, all the way down to the fabric wrapped booties.
Isabel's menswear pieces were a modern take on a Japanese inspired urban dandy.
This collection was full of almost wearable pieces with some bold silhouettes.
The juxtaposition of utilitarian leather with dreamy feminine mystique was very well done throughout Isabella's work.
The deep tones of this collection complemented well the masculine, urban aesthetic.
Céline's was one of my favourite collections of the week. Black is nearly always going to be a hit, but the way she used the negative space with the prints was luxurious and inspired.
Marie-Louise' accessories were very intriguing, one of the designers to use an innovative material in her paper thin wood weaving. Also, credit where credit is due, the first model's shoe fell of and she kept on walking without skipping a beat, bravo!

At first, I couldn't tell if I loved these accessories or hated them, which is usually a sign of something good. This last piece, especially, was a favourite.
I loved everything about this collection. Again, someone using the negative space and contrast in very intriguing ways. The bags were interesting and accessible at the same time.

These models were the embodiment of empowered women. They were fearless, the silhouettes were strong yet sexy and the choice of materials was perfect. Someone must have agreed because this was the only collection to have 8 models instead of 6 to walk down the runway.
While the silhouettes were bold in this collection, the trompe l'oeil prints were the best part.
You can't really see from the images, but these pieces were crafted by exaggerating and distorting typical men's suiting pattern pieces. This mixed with the modern urban Southern belle look was very inspired.
