London Graduate Fashion Week

Former Highworth Grammar School student Fleur Twyman from Ashford featured this week at the 2018 London Graduate Fashion week.

The annual event, held every June which sees over 60 leading universities and colleges unveil their students’ work, attracts 30,000 guests, features 25 catwalk shows and exhibition stands, alongside a packed schedule of talks and workshops from prominent names in the fashion and retail industry.

 It’s also a vital opportunity for industry experts to scout the hottest design talent and find inspiration in everything from fashion illustration to photography.

Known to signal the path from graduation to employment, the event is responsible for launching the careers of some of today’s most influential designers including Christopher Bailey MBE, Stella McCartney, Giles Deacon, Matthew Williamson and Julien Macdonald.

Fleur, who lives in Ashford, is a final year student at Northumbria University and is proud to be one of a select number of students chosen to represent the University and appear at the show.

Fleur said her collection for the show was “inspired by late 1980’s and early 1990’s skateboarding magazines, VHS tapes and film/TV productions, this collection has a humourous and slightly crude energy to it, whether it be through the print featured throughout, the oversized silhouette or bold and brash colours. This collection draws not only on past influences from skateboarding photography, film and personalities, but also considers modern skate parks and their architecture as well as impactful skate brands and street style that has made a huge difference in popularising the culture”

Northumbria Universities Catwalk Show featured six of Fleur's designs.
