Graduate Fashion Week 2011 Gala Awards Show: Womenswear Print

So much love for the print designers at the Gala Awards. My very favourite designer of all was Meg Cornwell of Bournemouth University but there was some lovely stuff from Christina Economou, Dominque Kral, Marissa Owen and Shirana Chavda too.

I am sure my regular readers will not be surprised to hear that it was the print designers who won my heart at the Graduate Fashion Awards Gala Awards. Never be afraid of colour and pattern my friends…

My very favourite had to be Meg Cornwell of Bournemouth University, click who unfortunately went home empty handed. I loved her combinations of flirty bell shaped minis splashed with abstract prints in a gorgeous colour palette of steel, rx maroon and pale blue, all accessorised with ruffled silver crop jackets. I would never have guessed it but her final collection was based on racing car engineering, with the prints inspired by car headlights. Follow Meg Cornwell on twitter.

Christina Economou showed a dashing collection of silky clashing prints in bold purple geometrics and splashy florals. Think high waistlines and high necklines.

Shirana Chavda of De Montfort University went for splashy colour in her loose print collection. I liked the leopard print wide leg pants and the huge beady reptilian eyeball on a crop top.
