I got invited by fashion scout uk to come see the 2018 graduate students show case and get first hand feel on what these creatives have been up to.
Let me just say it left me so breathless as I marvelled at the creation of these incredible designers who just graduated and haven’t been into the real designing world but their aesthetics and story behind their brands was definitely one to look forward to for seasons to come.
Maddy Stringer graduated from Edinburgh college of arts, and specialises in textile and material development ,exploring tactility and three dimensional surfaces for fashion. She showed at fashions fashion uk where u got the opportunity to style her collection and I’m so in awe of what she has created with persian rugs.
Leanne Callon, informal arrangement derives from a background focusing on the processes , development and construction techniques that make up a garment. As a knit wear designer she has mastered the art of creating pieces that are technical but exciting using knit wear and carpets.
This I found very interesting.

Alice Jardensten has perefctly created garments that tells a story of the best of both worlds ,using different fabrics to break the norm if how we to wear clothes and has successfully created more free ways of expressing oneself through mixing different structures and garment to create yet another garment that creates freedom for the wearer.
I fell in love with her garments and blown away as to how she mixed structures to recreate a master piece.
Rebecca Wilson creates garments that hopes to improve with age and I can say that she has successfully done that. As a lover of vintage fashion which is believe is time less fashion. Her collection was inspired by the Victorian working class garments with the aim to display the beauty that age creates and the story it starts to tell.
Shagun Chauhan is a graphic designer with a keen interest in illustration as clearly seen in these garments. It was love at first sight for me and I would gladly love every piece in my closet.
Everyone of this designers have out in so much time, funds and resources to create amazing garments that tell very relatable stories that in turn inspire us and best of all make us crave to have their garments in our closets.
