Today, our final-year BA Fashion students shared their graduating work with the world through the course's first ever digital-only launch.
With the annual physical BA Fashion Show cancelled due to coronavirus, this year's graduating cohort created a collective film to launch their professional careers. In change to previous years, students were tasked with creating two looks from their collection and an accompanying film. Edits of each of the 109 films were then stitched together to create one final piece. This creative endeavour took enormous effort and ingenuity from both staff and students as well as invaluable expertise and support from alumni – with special thanks to Daniel Lee of Bottega Veneta.
"I am so proud of the students and the work they have produced. The class of 2020 are resilient, intelligent, brave and creative. We will never forget this year.”
Sarah Gresty, Course Leader, BA Fashion
The students introduced their presentation with a group statement:
This year marks the twentieth anniversary of L'Oreal Professionnel's support for the annual showcase of BA Fashion work. For this lockdown show they linked students to their network of creative young hairstylists to collaborate virtually.
