London College of Fashion MA catwalk show 2012

London College of Fashion MA Catwalk show 2012

I graduated from London College of Fashion two years ago this month and it was on the last day of the course that I and my class found out that Alexander McQueen had died. I was informed via a text message from a person who worked at a rather high profile online fashion shop and needless to say it came as a shock.

Watching the London College of Fashion MA catwalk show last night reminded me of McQueen and his incredible talent. The talent of the young designers at LCF was apparent and like fashion editor and icon Isabella Blow, who bought all of McQueen’s graduate collection, I wanted to buy pretty much all of the 23 collections on show that night. I was amazed at the maturity of design, the unique techniques that had been developed but also their wearability. I would have no problems picking an item from the show and immediately wearing it.

The collections that really caught me eye were…
