Kingston University Graduate Fashion Week 2015: Catwalk Review

Graduate Fashion Week returned for a second outing to the Truman Brewery this week, and I went along to check out the talent from Kingston University.

Written by Amelia Gregory

Josh Read
I only received one invite to the 2015 edition of Graduate Fashion Week, so I was excited to attend the Kingston University graduate show at the Truman Brewery and get a brief glimpse into the talent that is leaving college this year. The venue was absolutely packed and I did not have a prime photo-taking spot, so I’ll apologise in advance for the quality of my images - Matt Bramford took a far more stunning set last year, which you can see here.

There was a wide variety of styles on show, and a good smattering of menswear (I love that it is such a burgeoning field in UK fashion) but as ever I was attracted to the more gregarious and colourful designers, joyfully blending colours and textures.
