Up-and-coming fashion designers from nearby University for the Creative Arts called on the college’s hairdressers to help style a number of models for the glamorous catwalk event. The final show, held at the Casino Rooms in Rochester, saw the arts university students showcasing an eclectic range of outstanding collections.
University fashion design lecturer, Johannes Reponen said: “This show offers our students an opportunity to show the work they’ve done to their parents and friends, as well as representatives from the fashion industry. It’s the absolute pinnacle of their three-year degree, so it’s wonderful to see students from the college being there to support them.
“In the fashion industry it is incredibly important to find great people to collaborate with, and the college’s students are young and fresh, and their work is energetic. We’re very keen to take this opportunity to work alongside them.”
Mr Reponen, who has styled for Muse magazine and has also worked with Emporio Armani, helped the level three hair designers create a range of looks that would suit the final show – this year inspired by 1920s French minimalism.
