LCFMA18 Womenswear: Creatures of the Starry Welkin

SEEN never ceases to be amazed by the sheer inventiveness of the designers currently studying at the London College of Fashion. Just when you think you’ve seen everything, along comes a design, garment, detail or accessory that is fresh, playful, tailored or cut. This year’s MA Womenswear show did not disappoint.

With recent graduates now working for Gucci, DSQUARED2 and Calvin Klein, this year’s cohort had big shoes to fill, if you’ll pardon the pun…

Leanne Callon wowed with moody asymmetric greys and blacks with tassels reminsicent of the punk era. Jiali Lu’s crisp monochrome outfits were androgymous and eminently wearable. Feiyi Shuai’s bold and funky patterns seemed made for London. VickyKLeung’s witty take on the business suit accentuated a sharp silhouette. Nina Galbé-Delord’s marine blues and contrasting ribbon details echoed eras past. The.Ran’s utilitarian webbing designs contrasted beautifully with tan leathers. Rongxia’s super slouchy styling and oversized accessories looked perfect for city life. Dmitry Gotsfrid’s combination of lace and latex accentuated the female form and made it strangely powerful. Juneyen’s sheer blouses and fitted trousers had the same effect. Eren’s outstanding futuristic neon and black designs really rang the changes. All in all it’s comforting to think that the future of fashion is in such talented hands.
