MCRFW Review: The Manchester School of Art
The Manchester School Of Art’s collection was one of the most creative catwalk shows I have ever seen. The clothing was thoughtful and ironic, bright and fun, and brought a smile to everyone’s faces at Wednesday’s show for Manchester Fashion Week.
It was clear that the students have raw talent, and it shone through in the clothing and structure of the show. With no information given about the students or their individual inspirations, it was up to the audience to come up with their own story for each mini collection.
If there is one thing that Manchester Fashion Week has taught me, it is that this city is buzzing with local design talent, and it shouldn’t be ignored. The students showcasing here are merely beginning their careers, and I’m sure these collections only scratched the surface of what these budding fashionistas are capable of.
A personal favourite was the refined digital printing by one of the students, a stunning array of colours on beautiful silhouettes giving a haute couture feel. An amazing show from some incredibly talented students; the future of North West fashion looks bright.
“At Manchester School of Art we encourage the students to experiment, take risks and develop their own original design vision, we hope you will see this creativity and variety in the collections shown.” – Jo Jenkinson, program leader
