FASHIONABLE FINALE FOR THE FUTURE OF NORTHERN IRISH DESIGN

160412_019

Future fashion designers from across Northern Ireland are this week putting the finishing touches to inspiring collections as they prepare to showcase their latest designs in the hotly anticipated Ulster University Graduate Fashion show which will take place at the Europa Hotel in Belfast on 26 May.

Stephen King MA Des RCA, Fashion Lecturer, Belfast School of Art at Ulster University said: “The students’ work on the catwalk will no doubt be a proud display of their unique style and individual vision.   With some truly inspiring and creative pieces including knits, prints and jaw-dropping silhouettes in the mix, the students are sure to wow the audiences.

“You wouldn’t believe how quickly the years fly in, one minute you have a room full of fresh faces, eager to learn new techniques and start designing, and then in the blink of an eye, just a few years later the same students have flourished into aspiring young designers, ready to showcase their own creations.  Their development in itself is such an achievement and the standard of work produced each year is outstanding, so it’s exciting to see the students off with a finale like this catwalk showcase.”

Final year student Amy Scanlon talks of her collection: “From the conceptual idea in my head, to putting pen to paper and sketching out a 5 piece collection, right through to the uncountable and pain-staking hours at a knitting machine, it’s cathartic to come full circle now as we prepare for our pieces to come alive on real life models, with professional hair and make up to create a full fashion theatre experience.”

Classmate Roseanna Crawford adds: “Having the show brings the whole project from academia to the commercial world, and it has certainly helped me learn the importance of things like commerciality versus creativity for example, so it is such a fantastic way to finish our degree and help launch our fashion careers.”

The students will see their collections modelled on show producer Cathy Martin’s CMPR Models with hair perfectly styled by the inventive team at Andrew Mulvenna hair and beautiful make up looks created by the talented artists at MNX Pro.

Tickets are on sale now at just £15 per ticket, which includes a fabulous goodie bag and are available from https://getinvited.to/ulstergraduatesfashionshow2016.
