After kicking off #LCF19 graduate season with the School of Media and Communication exhibition, it's now time for our next show. Graduates from School of Design and Technology have come together to prepare the biggest show we've ever had, with catwalks, exhibitions and workshops to showcase their final collections. In the lead up to this event, we've been catching up with the students to hear more about their projects and what they're most excited about starting their professional careers in the fashion industry.

They will showcase their creations at Here East on Thursday 18 and Friday 19 July 2019. You can see the show via our live stream on the website and keep an eye on our Instagram and Twitter feeds for updates.

A preview of the LCF19 BA (Hons) Fashion Pattern Cutting collections below…

Inspired by my visit to Smokey Mountain in the Philippines and moved by the Japanese culture of mending your clothes, I wanted to create a collection that portrays love and care for clothing as well as an ironical take on contemporary consumption culture. Various looks of the collection consist of garments merged together which can be worn in multiple ways.

This collection is made out of natural and biodegradable fibres or recycled materials such as pineapple leather, recycled wool, beeswax fabric, cotton and linen. It aims to make consumers reconnect with their garments, and give them a more valuable life.

For my final collection, titled 'Continuation' I've used top stitching to connect different textures and weight of fabric, giving it a very unique and differential aspect.

Now that I'm just about to start my career as a designer, I hope the future of fashion industry will be full of more sustainable designs made of organic or recycled fabrics.

I've created my collection 'Entanglement' as a reflection on the growth of life and the passage of time. These garments are made to make the wearer remember and feel through various silhouettes and tranquil colours.

The most valuable thing that I've learned during my time at LCF is the freedom to think and being independent as a designer.
