Never has a day been so surreal in all of my life. Even though I had been working towards the 19th May fashion show deadline since February, somehow it seemed like that date was so far off that it would somehow never actually happen.
For those of you that don’t know, I’m a final year Fashion Knitwear student at Nottingham Trent, a course where we design and knit the fabric using machines before making it up into garments. I’d always been anxious about this year after observing previous students a while ago and still wasn’t quite sure what I’d end up with less than two months before the show.
I’m going to explain a bit more about my concept and the process of knitting in a future post, but for now, here’s my graduate collection titled ‘Archive Assembly.’
Luckily Winnie, Lucy and Jazmine were able to come and see the show and take an insane amount of photos. I’m glad they had a fun day out before meeting up with me, so be sure to check out their reports on the day! Also a massive thanks to Tabio who provided the perfect socks for styling.

I have also just found out that I will be showing my collection at Graduate Fashion Week on June 7th, which is a dream come true!
