“A defining moment not only for the class of 2017, Regent’s BA (Hons) Fashion Design graduates, but equally, the future of the fashion industry ... a display of sheer talent and craftsmanship in tailoring, pattern-cutting and technique.” – After Nyne magazine
Top industry names from Nike and Monsoon attended the Regent’s University London’s final-year fashion show in Brick Lane. More than 600 people witnessed the innovative designs on the catwalk on 11 May.
Keeping up with the latest student innovations, Hearst Magazines, publisher of ELLE and Cosmopolitan and many other top magazine titles made sure they had a front row seat. Other celebrity attendees included representatives from the creative hub Arts Thread attended, along with Sylvia Ayton MBE, fashion entrepreneur, designer and chair of the Costume Society.
Dahren Davey, Regent’s Course Leader for Fashion & Design noted how the international nature of the student body is evident in their design.
“Our students are truly international and arrive with differing cultures and backgrounds. They are encouraged to be themselves, and this gives them a genuinely individual design and creative outlook to build upon.”
Marketing students’ final major projects were also featured in the showcase. Emma Jones found a gap in the market for skiwear that is fashionable and affordable, creating a brand called ‘Track’ that is aimed at the female millennial. She feels proud to say she studied fashion marketing at Regent’s.
