Swedish School of Textiles: London Fashion Week S/S 2014 Catwalk Review part one

We've been covering catwalk shows from graduates of the Swedish School of Textiles since 2010, and their work continues to be a highlight of the Fashion Scout schedule. Showing at Freemasons' Hall on Saturday 14th September 2013.

As in previous years, the Swedish School of Textiles at Boras took to the catwalk at Fashion Scout to showcase the best of their graduates. As the press release stated, this was not about commerciality but about promoting the myriad creative ways in which their students approach the use of textiles in fashion. At 35 minutes long this trip was not for the faint hearted and I felt sorry for the later designers, who lost audience members to the Holly Fulton show. Luckily me and my bike are fairly swift so I saw the show out, and was very glad I did since the closing collection was one of my favourites. I've split my coverage into two posts, but I'll keep my commentary short.
