125 images from Anglia Ruskin University’s Cambridge School of Art graduate fashion show
Graduates of the Cambridge School of Art, part of Anglia Ruskin University, unveiled some of their striking designs at a fashion show.
The catwalks were ablaze with colour as the class of 2019 presented their work.
After a busy week displaying their work in the capital, the students were at The Junction on Tuesday, June 11, for the show.
Mark Hart, course leader of the BA (Hons) fashion design course at ARU, said: “It’s been a very intense period because we showed at Graduate Fashion Week in London, at the Old Truman Brewery, the week before, from June 2 to 5.
“Then on June 6 we had our degree show, and then on June 11 we had the graduate fashion show at The Junction.
“So all the students have worked incredibly hard and they’re all exhausted.”
He added: “The show was a celebration of the past three years.
“As a group they are incredibly dynamic. A lot of their graduate collections focused on environmental and sociological issues, which we do encourage as a course – to design through having a voice that reflects cultural and environmental changes.
“A lot of our projects do focus on ‘how can we alter society through design?’.”
Mark, who believes that one of the strongest collections in the show was the all-black collection by Roberto Duarte Sabala, which was based on queer identity and included drag models, said that the collection was well received by the audience: “We had quite a few representatives from the industry there who we worked with closely on the course,” Mark said.
“The students have been very well supported over their last year and we wish them all the luck for the future and success in the industry.”
Mark added: “I’m very proud of them and looking forward to working with them in a professional capacity in the future.”
