Collection – Final Collection University of Westminster BA Fashion Design

These are photos of my final collection of MY BA degree in fashion at the University of Westminster.These are from the press show which is held on regent street. The inspiration was the extremes of masculinity and femininity. The garments explore a large variety of different ideas from British drinking culture, to vintage Schiaparelli pieces, to Mike Tyson. Also the whole collection had a personal element to myself connecting to my background with the idea of North England masculinity and being from Yorkshire and Leeds and then colliding it with feminine and cute imagery.
My work I like to relate a lot to myself, on a personal level, aiming for the odd and fun, I incorporate ‘girly’, cute and overtly feminine aspects which clash with references to ‘northern’ masculinity – mixing in obsessions with sport and pub culture as this was my upbringing in Northern England being surrounded with this idea of Northern Masculinity so my creative vision is about bring this across to my designs while combing it with a large variety of different research sources looking at what is masculine and feminine. Also I have a interest in vintage sourced clothing, the designs when made into item of clothing are not awkward to wear as my clothing and designs I wish to have a experimental vision but also respect the people I wish to wear my clothes to feel comfortable and for my clothing and collection to feel welcoming.
