DESIGNER TALENT OF THE FUTURE
I was invited to film at Ravensbourne Graduate Fashion show June 12th 2014 with the Blondie Media film crew and obviously we jumped at the chance.
A renowned fashion college which has produced some talented design talent. Last years graduate show was featured in Vogue online. The hair sponsors were Unite headed up by Fletch and makeup sponsors were Origins headed by Jo Coletta.
So impressive to see that the students had put on such a faultless show was a reflection of the calibre of student on graduation that Ravensbourne produce.
As always with young aspiring designers there were some incredibly wild and wacky designs but there were also some real standout designs and over the course of the coming months I will do a series of Q&A with the designers I personally loved and saw really potential in so stay tuned!
It may have been chaotic backstage but sitting on the front row you’d never know.
Before the show I interviewed the lead hair and makeup artists backstage to find out what products they used and how they created the look. To find out how they created the catwalk looks check back soon for our backstage film:
On the day I wore:
