Just a week ago, Middlesex University presented 19 carefully selected Fashion Design and Fashion Textiles collections to the industry and media at the Royal National Hotel. The candidates have been shortlisted by an industry panel of judges including: Kim Howells – Fashion Director at Hunger, Matthew Josephs – Fashion Director at Wonderland, Keko Hainswheeler – Middlesex alumni, fashion designer and Creative Consultant at Diesel and Kiko Simōes Gaspar – Marketing & Communications at Vivienne Westwood.
Middlesex University has a long standing commitment to nurturing the future of British fashion, and for the second time the 2015 Live Catwalk Communication Campaign has been organized by a team of Fashion Communication and Styling students, supervised by industry Fashion PR and Production Professionals together with the Middlesex’s Fashion team.
Director of Programmes, Meg Osborne: ““Our BA Fashion Programmes create young, exciting, talented designers and image makers, who are industry ready. Our students excel in both skills and imagination and we represent the best of London’s emerging talent. Our renowned Industry panel has recognised our innovative womenswear and the strength of our menswear, with their perfect balance of textiles and design, along with the images produced by our stylists and photographers representing the zeitgeist in contemporary culture. At Middlesex we encourage and enable students to challenge the preconceptions of identity with our state of the art facilities, supported by our energetic and relevant teaching and technical staff. Striving for diversity and visual dynamism when there’s more important things than hearing you speak.”
