On Friday the 14th February, LCF presented it’s annual MA catwalk at London Fashion Week. The show was held in the Adelphi Suite at The Waldorf Hotel and featured 10 students in total – 6 Womenswear and 4 Menswear. The show was produced by a stellar team: styling by Anders Sølvsten Thomsen (formerly Fashion Director, LOVE Magazine), make-up by Andrew Gallimore and the M∙A∙C PRO team and hair by Lyndell Mansfield for Bumble and bumble.
During the show SHOWstudio hosted a live discussion with Richard Mortimer (Editor-in-Chief of PONYSTEP), Soki Mak (Stylist), David Hellqvist (Editor of PORT) and Lou Stoppard (SHOWstudio).
Influential industry figures, press and tastemakers were in attendance for the show: Princess Julia, Imran Amed (Business of Fashion), Natt & Leah Weller, VV Brown, Virginia Bates, Jade Parfitt, Jess Cartner-Morley (The Guardian), Andrew Davis (Wonderland), Mandi Lennard (Mandi’s Basement) and Charlie Porter (Financial Times).
Barbra Kolasinksi’s collection was apt for the date the show was held on – Valentine’s Day. Jade Parfitt was one of many to comment on twitter
Valentine’s coat of pink fluffy dreams!
Charlie Porter, Menswear Critic of the Financial Times said of the show:
I’ve just been to the London College of Fashion MA show – super tight, super well edited, and also a super good balance between women’s and men’s.
Menswear Designer, Daniel Yuste was a big hit with Charlie.
