THE BEST OF GFW DAY 2
Celebrating UK creatives is what we love at BLAIZED UK, and last week we attended Graduate Fashion Week on the scout for hot upcoming designers. The shows were noticeably very colourful and bold, with diversity and creativity being the head topic.
Here are our favourite looks on the catwalk from Monday's shows:
PUI SI TANG - BIRMINGHAM CITY UNIVERSITY
Named 'Jungle Heist' this collection was an image of baby pinks and pastel greens. With furry bucket hats and embellished detailing, we loved the playful, girly vibe of this collection.
MOLLY DILKS - NOTTINGHAM TRENT UNIVERSITY
Showing inspiration from buddhism and Japanese art, Molly Dilk's collection was refreshing to see on the runway. With a muted, natural colour palette, the delicate wrapping and detail of the garments caught our eye.
ERIN HEEKS - BIRMINGHAM CITY UNIVERSITY
Bringing a sharp edge to the show, Erin Heeks' collection featured bold prints contrasted against metallic detailing. The checkerboard skirt and jacket combo was our favourite to walk down the runway!
AURELIE FONTAN - EDINBURGH COLLEGE OF ART
Winner of the M&S womenswear award, catwalk textiles award AND the Dame Vivienne Westwood sustainable award, this collection definatley stunned the audience.
WAKO TAKATO - NOTTINGHAM TRENT UNIVERSITY
Made of electrical PVC tape forming a structural piece, this jacket and trousers combo was definitely a favourite. This combo featured in the GFW campaign shooting.
CHARLOTTE PLATTEN - NOTTINGHAM TRENT UNIVERSITY
Experimenting with proportions, knitwear designer Charlotte Platten stunned us with her collection at GFW. We loved the colourways of the designs and the exaggerated, oversized sleeves.
