LCFMA21: Showcasing the latest cohort of postgraduate talent
We are excited to announce our showcasing plans for this year's #LCFMA21 postgraduate season. Beginning with School of Design and Technology on Wednesday 17 February, LCF's Instagram will host a teaser for the school’s official showcase, which will take place in summer 2021. The preview will exhibit a selection of projects from MA Menswear, MA Womenswear, MA Footwear, MA Fashion Futures, MA Fashion Artefact and MA Pattern and Garment Technology.
"The challenges and complexities we face encourage ingenuity and creativity, make us determined to achieve, whilst revealing to us new opportunities. The MA class of 2021 step forward stronger, more resilient and more focused than ever before" Rob Phillips, Creative Director of School of Design and Technology.
#LCFMA21 will then continue from Wednesday 24 February until Sunday 7 March with School of Media and Communication's launch of an immersive digital platform. The two-week showcase will host an array of projects curated into three distinct areas, film and photography, costume design and communication, each designed to create an interactive experience for the viewer.
Showing remarkable resilience and creativity, this cohort of graduates have adapted to showcasing their projects within a digital space, incorporating into their work hopeful messages for the future. Other key themes explored this year include activism and change, reclaiming of heritage and new definitions of identity.
“Our graduates enter a sector which is in the process of deep reflection and change, but I am in no doubt that they will be the ones who will help to re-set and challenge the industry to be better. Their resilience and creativity will ensure the future of the fashion industry, one of the most important sectors to the UK and global economy.” - Professor Roni Brown – Head of College at London College of Fashion, UAL
The new School of Media and Communication platform developed in collaboration with Twomuch Studio reflects an innovative approach to design, allowing the viewer to feel immersed and connected to each project. Viewers will be able to navigate an interactive gallery presenting works across fashion film and photography, a mapped world of concepts and explorations across the communication-based courses and a futuristic layout presenting the best up and coming talent in costume design.
