Westminster Fashion Show!

April 3, 2011

Earlier this week, we had an amazing fashion show at University of Westminster. It was a Thursday afternoon when the 1st year BA Fashion Design students started the event in the university ‘garden’ despite the chilly wind. Models in all sizes and shapes were streaming down the catwalk in colourful prints. A crowd from different courses around the campus gathered all around the green space to watch the show.

“It took me days to find the right garment, and weeks to sketch and make this one dress,” says 1st year fashion design student, Emily Mei Cross. “But walking on a catwalk was delightful! Now that it’s all over, we can all get some descent night sleep”.

If one thing’s for sure is that they’ve succeeded to deliver their work as expected: bright beautiful prints in blue, pink, cream, and all sorts of colours were to be seen mixed (but not particularly matched) with other prints and different garments.

Whilst playing designer chosen tunes from speakers, the models did a pretty good job of not falling over sky-high heels. But it was the cuts and shapes of the every piece in the collection that truly made the audience react in different ways. Fashion design student Alexander Muto caused quite a stir when he walked down the catwalk wearing a body-conscious dress, heels and smoking a cigarette. Seconds later, a female model appeared almost half naked, but elegantly wrapped up in one-piece garment. Some were laughing and others were whispering to each other in surprise of how the dresses turned out looking so fashionable – the University of Westminster fashion show will always make an impact, that’s for sure. We can’t wait to see more of the talented and wonderful at another fashion show later this year.
