Gray’s School of Art hosted a fashion show at the Robert Gordon University premises in Aberdeen to celebrate the works of its stage two and three fashion and textiles students.
While stage two students were asked to create collaborative looks inspired by uniforms, stage three students developed looks influenced by their understanding of anthropology.
We caught up with a few of the designers to find out more about their creations.
Stage three fashion design student Leah Christie created a collection titled Playground.
She said: “My project was initially inspired by 2000s kids, more specifically activities, toys and TV shows from that era.
“My final garments are inspired by the shapes from playgrounds with a feel of TV show characters that I watched.
“I wanted my project to be exciting and play with the idea of fashion and costume.”
Stage three textile design student Emma Fraser’s collection Trace was inspired by movement and light.
She said: “Most of the visual aesthetic came from my experimental photography which captures people moving.
“I was interested in the abstract concept of movement and light as I wanted to challenge myself to create something out of the box and very original to me. This lead to my experimentation with colour, specialist yarns and abstract drawings.”
Stage two students Leyre Molina, Rachel Moir and Holly Kirkwood created a garment titled Urban Explorer.
Leyre said: “Our designs are inspired by survival themes, concealment and restraint. We were inspired by beekeepers, rock climbing and female wartime workwear.”
