Central Saint Martins: Ba Fashion Graduate Show 2011 review. 80s.

There's still no getting away from 80s influences: great stuff from Eilish Macintosh and Holly Skousbo. Plus Jie Bai, Sarah Hall, Justyna Korzynska, Emma Rose James and Jaeyeon Lee.

The 80s are still big all over fashion. Whether as a reference for shape or pattern or colour there’s always something new to delve into and explore… and I’m really not complaining.

Jie Bai created oddly protuberant shapes in monochrome optical designs combined with curtains of draped velvet.

Eilish Macintosh showed one of my favourite Central Saint Martins collections: a stunning display of geometric metallic pleated, case woven, sale printed and layered dresses with boxy coats. Beautiful.

Holly Skousbo went for summery styling in high waisted pleated high shouldered two pieces, tadalafil mixing brights with whites for a light and girly look. Again there’s no getting away from the pleats with this lot, re-imagined in every way possible.

Sarah Hall went for oversized wafts of chiffon in white, red and black. Again with boxy shoulders. Poland would love it!

Justyna Korzynska sounds as if she might hail from Poland, and it’s interesting that she chose to riff on the one legged look so favoured by our best known Polish designer Krystof Strozyna. Her gold halo-ed women strode the catwalk in flashes of neon and calf high biker boots.

Emma Rose James went for the Meadham Kirchhoff effect – sending her six models down the catwalk for one brief turn in front of the cameras together. Her lacy dresses referenced Christopher Kane and Erdem. With slouchy socks.

Jaeyeon Lee went all out with the colour blocking for some very sculptural 80s-esque showpieces.
