As the premier platform for showcasing the exceptional talent of students and graduates within the fashion industry, (think Christopher Bailey, Stella McCartney, Giles Deacon, Matthew Williamson) Graduate Fashion Week 2018 has got international fashion tongues wagging. Innovation, craftsmanship, progression please take a bow.

From vibrant knitwear, flamboyant patchwork, exquisite embroidery to sleek pinstripes, 2018’s graduates did not disappoint.

Maddy Stringer’s collection takes inspiration from Persian rugs and stair runners of her childhood doll’s house, expressed through embossed plastics, faux leather and over-sized silhouettes. Deep venetian reds with flares of magenta and federal blues pulsate throughout the collection, embedding a striking contrast that is electrifying and also brilliant.
