As part of my final few days of college we have put on a fabulous end of year fashion show. Both years and foundation degree have put extreme hard work and dedication to create a final collection responding to their individual theme.
Trend Project Year ones were given a theme which was called Organic Modernity. They explored this theme in depth to create a detailed outfit of the their choice. And oh my, they did just that.
Here is the outfits made by the talented designers shown on the catwalk:
White all in one trouser suit with ruffles.
Brown / Beige jeans with t-shirt.
Rust Skort and Top with Lizard embroidery.
Dusky Pink dress and beige jack with skull.
Olive green full length dress with good embroidery.
Peach dress with up and down hem embroidery.
Brown fitted dress with gold lace and white bodice panel.
Dusky pink skirt, white backless top and dusky pink bralet.
White / Pink with pink top and white jacket.
