Arts Thread: The Next Wave Of Womenswear Talent From The Royal College Of Art
Postgraduate art students in London get a chance to show off their latest fashion designs.
The Work in Progress exhibition is an annual window on the emerging talent currently studying on the prestigious postgraduate courses run by the UK’s Royal College of Art. Examples of work from all of the current fashion and textiles students were displayed from January 11-18 2012, in a free, exciting and inspiring show. In this first post, ARTS THREAD chooses some highlights from the womenswear fashion students.
Dramatic statements and a general air of exuberance emerged strongly as an overall trend. The global economic crisis grinds on, but the exhibition revealed an optimistic and even extravagant view of the future of fashion.
