Long time CLUTTERERS,
This time last week(end) I was given the joy of attending Graduate Fashion Week and had the opportunity to watch one of my favourite University’s for future design talent – Istituo Marangoni – open the catwalk. (So I knew the 10:00am wake-up would be worth it!)
This year, I’ve been choosy with Graduate works and have decided to be selective with the designers featured on the blog. There were two designers that stood out to me on the catwalk.
The first was Karle Errazti de Miguel’s and her creative collection based on the texture of materials. Although most of the collections used earthy / neutral colours, I think the material texture used along with classical draping, folds and wrinkles which made this collection “simply unique”.
The second designer that caught my eye is Marika Grasso’s menswear. I’ve noticed a slight shift of focus in menswear and it can be due to loads of things such as the launch of London Collections: Men or an increase in more fashion conscious males – I’m absolutely enjoying the shift! Unlike Miguel’s work, I can’t find an aesthetic reasoning for me loving the collection I just felt like it was all so cool – and you have to go with how you feel right?
My camera was having a mini crisis at this point so my apologies for the lack of images I have of Marika Grasso’s collection.
Stay tuned for more of my reports being posted today!
