Erm... My Graduate Collection

Sorry for the unimaginative title.

I promised to post my graduate collection as soon as it was finished, but in all honesty, when it was all over and done with, I was sick of the sight of it and put it to the back of my mind like a really bad date. I’m not going to get too into it, but I drifted from the original direction I wanted to go in because as a fashion student sometimes you feel you have to compromise your designs to suit others and my final collection ended up looking different to how I imagined it to, but hey, that’s the creative process.

I remember throughout my years at uni, I always wondered if my graduate collection was going to be a career defining one as, say, that of Christopher Kane or William Tempest (clearly it wasn’t) and since graduating, I’ve gone from not wanting to ever see another sewing machine to trying to “find” myself then falling deeply in love with fashion all over again.

I didn’t feel confident with showing my collection on my blog-why? I don’t know. I’m very critical of my work, and if I feel like I could do better, I want to go away and perfect it. However, some good things have come off the back of my collection meaning you guys will be seeing parts of it anyways, so I guessed I might as well share it with you guys.

I’m currently in the process of making another collection so stay tuned for that as well.

(P.s. I didn’t pull a Tom Ford and intentionally put off showing you guys the pictures.)

Ahhh this is great stuff, but I can see after spending so much time creating it, it can drive you a little mad. I think it's important to distance yourself sometimes and realise what you've achieved; such gorgeous shapes!
