Bath Spa once again brought their finest work to graduate fashion week, showcasing its fresh talent and astounding the room. An amazing energy of collections showcased expressive prints, plenty of clean lined tailoring and loosely draped fabric.

Opening the show with ‘Framing Shape’ came Hannah Harwin Barclay‘s collection of dark scooped skirts, with tight tropical orange and yellow reptile skin prints. Models wore geometric navy and deep maroon shaping, reflective of a modernist movement. Following a natural theme, highlights included shell clustered jewellery and a fabric neck pieces.

Isabella Kent Webb, Bath Spa University

Another fantastic collection came from Isabella Kent Webb, that ran to Judy Garland’s ‘Get Happy’ setting the scene for a mix of flowing purples and blue- grey blouses printed with tiny Scottish terriers. The smart casual collection provided a range of smart womenswear for the modern women in a culture full of the vintage celebration.

Victoria Rich, Bath Spa University

Victoria Rich displayed strong characters in her city boy meets the country theme ‘The Urban Poacher’. Mustard knits and tweed suiting lined the runway with extra touches from apple iPad and iPods accentuating the idea of a collection intended for the younger man.

Sophia Hallam, Bath Spa University

Sophia Hallam’s army inspired garments to print to a new level, utilising soldiers as the ‘camouflage’ on tailored pieces. Pockets adorned with uniformed buttons fitted most pieces and an elegant yet risqué navy chiffon shirt stood out as well as the long length marigold yellow trench coat with navy edge lining inside, powerfully centred the collection.

Emily Booker, Bath Spa University

A technical bike wear inspired collection from Emily Booker finished the Bath Spa show. In jersey greys with flashes of orange; including a snood style neck piece and garments that sculpture the male form creating leisure wear in layered constructions.
