This week we held our first ever Fashion End of Year Show and celebration for our BA Fashion Design students! This was their chance to be centre stage, and we heard from each student as they gave us insights into the hard work, creativity and craftsmanship that went into their final collections and portfolio as their designs were showcased on the catwalk in our on-campus Icon Studio.
The evening was led by our Head of Fashion Vaishali Raj and kicked off by our Pro Vice-Chancellor Dr Cedwyn Fernandes, and we had nearly 100 people tuning in.
We were also joined by two fascinating industry speakers: Dina Melwani, MDX Dubai alumni and Founder of fashion house Melwani Couture, and Monica Malhotra, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Gaggler, a female-led digital content platform with a special focus on sustainability.
Dina and Monica shared their stories of how they got to where they are today and what they learned along the way. They also shared their perspectives on the important topics creating waves in the fashion industry such as sustainability, and provided our students with their tips for finding success in this exciting, dynamic field!
Here’s some of their advice for budding fashion designers:
