UCA Rochester showcased a broad range of creative and thought-provoking fashion forward designs on our SmartFocus catwalk.
There was textile madness on the runway with menswear designs in mesh, PVC and satin, followed by ultra girly frills with powder purple tones, busy bold prints in floor length Japanese cuts.
Oriental embroidery in emerald greens and scarlet reds, with perfect pleating and abstract silhouettes, prison stripes and orange overalls made a bold statement on the SmartFocus stage. Another head-turning collection came from a UCA Rochester graduate as snow queens dressed in extravagant white fur puffa co-ords with hints of pink and orange floated down the runway.
The final collection captured the audience attention as cuddly toys hijacked the runway. My little pony headpieces and statement teddy bear jackets were surrounded by bright yellow, pink, blue and orange knitted garments. This collection had the audience smiling.
