Graduate Fashion Week 2009: Ravensbourne

With last years Graduate Fashion Week overall winner of the Gold Award, Jessica Au, coming from Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication, there was high hopes for this show and I don’t think they disappointed, I was very impressed. The standard was high and the judges thought so too, with Mehmet Ali being awarded the Menswear Award for an extremely wearable and sophisticated collection. It’s rare to look at a menswear collection and actually want your boyfriend to wear it – but this one you do. Calum Harvey won the Textiles Award for his work, his fabulous oversized knits going down a treat.

Calum Harvey:

Amanda Ng‘s models suffered from abandoned shoes, it happened a few times throughout the show, they were helpfully removed by audience members but whether they were concerned about the models tripping over them or grabbing a sneaky pair for themselves was not clear…

Here is a little selection of the collections from the Ravensbourne students:

Kate Williams:

Yasmin Siddiqui:

Amanda Scott:

Laura Yiannakou:

Rebecca Cluett:

Hannah Taylor:

Marie Molterer:

All very enjoyable and professional collections, a majority of these graduates could have easily held their own in London Fashion Week, in fact I’m pretty sure we will be seeing these names there soon.
