I finally got a new lens for taking show photos by myself and I don't have to bother the brands for the official photos. I think I still have to take some time to get used to it and I hope I will take better photos very soon. I got an invitation from my dear friend, Kay Kwok for joining his graduation show last Thursday at V&A and it was also my first time to watch the LCF MA show after I came to London. I would like to thank him for sharing the joy with me and he did a really great job! The show showcased 23 collections including mens and womenswear, the shoes and accessories design students' work as well. I was amazed by some work with very nice lazer cutting, digital printing and 3D printing technique. Great to see some unique lace as well! Ok, it's time to memorise new names now.
Tina Elisabeth Reiter is the winner of Menswear. Her collection, The Sound of Homeless(ness), brought some new outfits to homeless people and helped them to search for their root.
Arena Page's collection brought many new ideas for pattern cutting and tailoring. This is my favourite piece in the collection. The shoulder!!!
Joseph Turvey is one of my Top 3 collections in the show. I really like his drawings and how he apply them to the clothes. His knitwear added some bonus points as well! The fuchsia lace suit is my favourite piece and I so want to buy it for my Summer!
May Tang's tailor-made lace is so personal. They reminded me those stained glasses in V&A. I really like the shoes version!
Kay Kwok's story is about Fake Eternity inspired by the ancient Egyptian culture. I would say the clothes are not only an object but also create a visual movement when the models were walking on the runway.
Paper craft and Blue are always my favourite and Jie Liang's collection includes both of them! The lazer cut details were killing me at the show!!
Jennifer Murray is my favourite!! I would love to buy the full collection if I were rich enough. The pattern, the colours and actually the length of the hemline all attracted me to check this collection. If Jesus were a ringmaster, what would we gonna be?
There are so many beading embellishments in Charlotte Simpson's collection. The minimal A-line shape is what I like as well.
