Fresh off the runway: OFW concept show

Brookes Art & Design students showcased their creations at Oxford Fashion Week’s concept show.


Brookes Art & Design Foundation students’ designs featured on the catwalk of Oxford Fashion Week’s concept show.

Their work took centre stage, as their unworldly designs opened the show.

Four lucky students from the course had their work selected by Oxford Fashion Week.

They were told to design a piece that captures wilderness and mystery.

Foundation Art & Design student Alison Lee said:”It was quite exciting having one of my designs showcased at OFW. I was pleased with myself as the hard work paid off.”

She plans to study lingerie design next year.

Idalia Rivolta’s dress was also selected for the catwalk. She said:”I felt privileged to have my dress showcased, it was like a minute of fame.”

The main show saw the Ballroom at the Randolph hotel transform from a rainforest gradually to an urban jungle.

Designers Anoosh stole the show with their conceptually challenging designs.

Soft organic designs soon became monochrome and industrial as models strutted down the catwalk underneath the chandeliers.
