The Edinburgh College of Art Fashion Show 2018, sponsored by Cazenove Capital in partnership with National Museums Scotland, takes a fresh approach to traditional runway events. Legal firm Turcan Connell is also kindly providing additional sponsorship support.
The venue will be designed so that every audience member will have a front row seat, making the event inclusive and accessible to all and eliminating the norms of fashion hierarchy.
The Fashion Show will feature the latest designs by final-year undergraduate and postgraduate students, who have used pioneering techniques and innovative concepts to create a diverse and exciting show.
This year, the student showcase will encompass explorations of Scottish Heritage, technology, sustainability and diversity.
Three of the students on show have already won prestigious British Fashion Council Awards and Scholarships.
Platform for success
The Edinburgh College of Art Fashion Programme has established a reputation as a leader in fashion education.
In 2016, students scooped first, second and third place in the British Fashion Council Burberry Awards, and first place in the British Fashion Council Topman Award.
In 2017 our students won a majority of the Graduate Fashion Week Awards, including the Gold Award, Womenswear Award, Knitwear Award and Catwalk Textiles Hilary Alexander Trailblazer Award. This was an unprecedented sweep for a UK fashion programme, recognising the outstanding talents of Edinburgh-trained students.
Students on the programme have gone on to work for leading brands including Balenciaga, Gucci, Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood and Calvin Klein.
The programme also advocates increased diversity in the fashion design industries.
