Global stories were reflected in Northbrook College’s graduate show at Graduate Fashion Week yesterday.
Kick-starting Northbrook’s show, Hope Scrivener presented a collection inspired by ancient Iran and erosion, with tunics, intricate mosaic patterning and textures including cow-hide and vintage sarees which reflect ed the distressed element of the collection. Set to Bollywood music, this collection transported the packed theatre to a faraway land.
Referencing her interest in all things high-end, graduate Heena Mulji‘s collection had a distinct sense of luxury, with diamond detailing on floor-length gowns. Inspired by gothic architecture, crystals, cave and corsetry, one pleated, tiered black gown made a statement with a rounded structured bodice.
A wacky collection inspired by religious iconography by Sacha Kreeger made its mark on the audience with fantastic print designs featuring Mary, Jesus and also pennies! Attention to detail was key with these designs – carefully placed zips on the backs of garments and bronze lurex leggings added the perfect finishing touches.
