The Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture at Kingston University is renowned for courses that are industry focussed and professional. This is exemplified by the award winning BA (Hons) Fashion programme, ranked 4th in the world, which produces graduates that the fashion press watch out for and that industry is keen to attract.
Beginning with a soundtrack to Peter Pan saying, “How do we get to Neverland,” started the show off with a mysterious and playful tone. The show was full with the audience excited, with many of the graduate’s collections bringing out every phone in the audience. With many interesting themes showing off their talent, with inspiration from cowboys, extreme metallic long nails, and a dead Donald duck on top of a hat. Cartoons were definitely a reoccurring idea with the loud music accompanied with voiceovers from old cartoon movies.
With the finale a celebration of the designers when they revealed themselves onto the catwalk, the room was full of cheers and screams of pride.
