So, the academic year is coming to a close and students all over the country are finishing their assignments and studying for exams. Young Academic today brings you some more student news in the form of a fashion show held by final year university students in London.
Kicking off the student fashion show season in style, Ambika P3 will see the best collections from this year’s final year students of the University of Westminster. Known as the home for cutting edge fashion and used by designers such as Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab and Louise Gray, this Thursday Ambika P3 will hold the runway show for final year fashion design students of the London based university.
“A diverse and eclectic range of aesthetics and approaches to fashion design”
Fashion Editor of Grazia magazine, Angela Buttolph joins Fashion Designers Markus Lupfer, Todd Lynn and Carrie Mundane to make up the panel of judges who selected the very best collections from the final year students at University of Westminster studying a degree in Fashion Design. Those selected will grace the runway at the event on Thursday 26 May.
Course Director Andrew Groves said “This year’s graduates display a diverse and eclectic range of aesthetics and approaches to fashion design. They have remained even more determined to realise their own personal vision of style. If there is one commonality running throughout this year’s graduates then it is a return to a naivety and playfulness that is married to a belief in the importance of print, fabrication, and embellishment in relation to the worn garment.“
A Fashion Design degree from the University of Westminster is extremely prestigious and those students lucky enough to gain a place on the course have worked for a number of internationally acclaimed design houses including Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen.
This year’s graduates have already begun securing job offers from various prominent design houses such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Thom Browne, Aitor Thorp and Roksanda Ilincic. Others will continue their studies on the prestigious post-graduate course at the Royal College of Art whilst some have interviews lined up with Burberry, Max Mara and Armani Exchange. Italian Vogue will feature the graduates work later this year.
