It is always a great excitement to receive your invitation to the London College of Fashion’s MA Womenswear Show. Ten aspiring designers putting the inner workings of their creative minds into a fashion collection, is a sight to behold.
One of our favourites from the show this year was Dimity Gotsfrid. His pastel pink sheer coat encrusted with fur pom poms and cropped cape back, stole our hearts. His collection was sheer and sexy with elegant seam lines showing off the female figure to perfection and we will never forget the giant bow veil. Vicky Leug was a stark contrast, with a collection made entirely out of suits. Retaining the masculine frame, Vicky manipulated an assembly of jackets, trousers and dresses into entirely new outfits offering a new perspective on the term “deconstructed tailoring”.If hygge was a fashion style, Leanne’s collection would be it. She incorporates warm grey slouchy yet chic knitwear with Persian style kilim rugs. Titled “Informal Arrangements” her collection was made for a wholesome weekend.Delightfully playful is how we’d describe Nina Galbe Delford’s collection. Electric blues and fuchsia pinks and fiery reds paired with neutral beiges folded into statement style ruffles with playful sequins and girl like ribbons. The flowing neutral maxi skirts and delicate shift dresses offered a more subdued edge to the boldness of the collection.The Ran’s collection was another of our favourites. She magnificently marries autumnal earthy boho flowing forms with the hemp crocheting – woven into lingerie style waist clinching waspies and bralettes, giving the 70s hippy vibe a 21st century facelift.With recent graduates from LCF now working for household names such as Jacquemus, Ralph & Russo, Alexander McQueen and Gucci, we wish the best for this years MA students and look forward to seeing their name in lights in the years to come.
