End of year fashion show now set to become annual event for Cambridge
Fashion designers from the first graduating year of Cambridge School of Art BA (Hons) Fashion Design have burst on to the fashion scene with a spectacular Fashion Show to mark their graduation.
The Fashion Show, held at Anglia Ruskin University, was a sell out and widely applauded which means it is set to become one of the highlights of the Cambridge School of Art calendar.
Senior Lecturer and BA (hons) Fashion Design course leader Wendy Moody recognises the importance of a graduation show as the time of year when the industry sits up and pays attentions with designers and the media on the look out for the latest talent and is proud of the student’s achievements:
Kayleigh Valentine describes it as being ‘mad’ since the Fashion Show. Her work was shown at the prestigious Brighton Fashion Week and featured on the homepage of the website which led to Kayleigh being interviewed by Vogue.com. She is now undertaking an internship with Supremebeing, working with Moldfashion.com to advise them on buying and styling and selling her work through them all whilst working on her next collection.
About her work Kayleigh says:
Showing alongside Kayleigh at both the Cambridge and Brighton Fashion Shows was Joy Williams whose experimentation with latex has led to an opportunity to work with up-and- coming art-based photography company Fetish Rocks. Through connections on the BA (hons) Fashion Design Joy has landed an internship with couture latex company House of Harlot.
All first class Fashion Shows need a top photographer and graduating BA (Hons) Photography student Miroslav Zaruba proved his worth at the show. Based in London, Miroslav has worked on London Fashion Week and with fashion agencies and his highly professional images capture the excellent quality and cutting edge design of the graduates’ pieces.
