Studying Fashion at UEL 71

Thank You 73

Welcome This summer marks the second anniversary of the existence of the School of Arts & Digital Industries at University of East London. The School continues to grow and flourish as a vibrant, creative community encompassing disciplines as diverse as fashion, textiles, film, fine art, journalism, advertising, graphic design, photography, animation, illustration, digital and multi-media arts, games design, music, theatre, dance, creative writing, media, cultural and heritage studies. Between these specialisms, we develop and nourish interdisciplinary collaboration and innovative approaches to learning and making. Many of our academic and technical staff are research-active, industryengaged and experienced professional practitioners; our alumni frequently return to provide added experiential value to our provision, and we maintain close links with employers and leading organisations across the arts, cultural and creative industries. This year’s Graduate Fashion Week showcase is especially exciting for us as we welcome our new Head of Fashion, Ms Dorota Watson, to the University of East London. Joining our team in March 2013, Dorota has initiated significant curriculum development within Fashion and Textiles at University of East London. In the context of University of East London’s Centre for Excellence in Women’s Entrepreneurship, continued UEL Knowledge Dock support for fashion business incubation, and ascendance of Stratford’s Westfield as a major retail and commercial hub, UEL Fashion’s presence at Graduate Fashion Week marks the opening of a significant period of refreshment and rejuvenation. Our fashion graduates are poised on the very edge of their futures as designers, stylists, retailers, entrepreneurs, buyers and so on. They are ready for launch. Please join me in congratulating them, and wishing them great success at UEL alumni and the fashion graduates of 2013. Professor Catherine Harper Dean of the School of Arts and Digital Industries


In March 2013 I was delighted to take up the Post as Head of Fashion at the University of East London at a time of great change for the department that will present fantastic new opportunities for students and local industry. The Fashion department nurtures creativity and business skills for emerging professionals; these skills will provide a key underpinning for new course provision. It gives me great pleasure to introduce this year’s final year BA cohort; the work showcased on the stand celebrates work from the graduating students from Fashion Design; Fashion Design and Management; Printed Textiles and Fashion Futures. Students have achieved industry ready creative proposals, which have amalgamated their learning whilst at UEL, that includes a period in industry on a placement. Creative solutions are evidenced through the catwalk presentation, textile interpretations and ‘alternative practice’, which include magazine and business proposals. The Fashion department at UEL has excellent resources that include a dedicated machine workshop, screen printing facilities, access to a digital bureau and studio space. Collaborative projects are encouraged between students within the department and more widely across the school. The students’ learning is facilitated through a dedicated staff team, which includes visiting tutors who add industry currency; other staff members are either full time or part time and are either research active or practice based. I very much look forward to the year ahead.

She was the last queen of France, both vilified and exalted for her decadent lifestyle, her essence captured in this collection. Through a vibrant palette of pinks and blues, seventeenth century silhouettes are dissected into playful separates. Corsetry is reinvented. Her rebellious attitude is reflected in subversive latex trims, bold and irreverent, offset against intricate pleating and luxurious brocades. Bloomers and chemises are worn with nonchalance under a sumptuous frockcoat. Off-key prints, blurred, distorted and magnified are splashed across cascading layers on voluminous skirts, embracing a certain joie de vivre, all inspired by a fun frivolous and vastly extravagant personality.

This collection has its roots firmly embedded in the fixed gear cycling community, one that is widely noted for its strong street style and philosophy. Innovative use of fabrics, prints and materials combine with simple and exciting designs to create this look. Taking inspiration from the streets of East London, performance fabrics and classic British tailoring are juxtaposed with relaxed, understated shapes. In one look, a structured tweed jacket is combined with square shorts layered over fluorescent printed leggings. Functional, performance sportswear is transformed by the integration of hidden pockets, reflective highlights, reinforced seams and ergonomic shapes.

Victory and Triumph explores the powerful warrior women of medieval history, such as Joan of Arc and Boudicca, who inspired this collection. Strong structures and silhouettes reflect the concept. The processes of cording, pleating and laser cutting techniques along with the use of accent trims create a medieval look with a contemporary twist. Luxurious fabrics are mixed with leather and suede, incorporating a rich colour palette of soft silvers, browns, beige, cream and stone.

A woodland walk inspired the collection. The dull, wet forest was gloomy and a flash of orange caught the eye. Orange fungus was highlighted from the dull background. Ideas have been developed from an image of this. The sloping hoods of the mushrooms reflect the dropped shouldered silhouette. The oversized umbrella heads are too large for the slim stalk. The inner mushrooms intricate design is reflected in the pleated details throughout the collection. Black; in various fabrics which come together to exaggerate the variety of textures and shades created, with the vibrant flash of orange that initially caught the eye.

“U.O.NOTT’’ (Under Over Knott) The knotting of childhood paper-chains and the doodles of Spirographs on a math book were the original starting point for this clever and simple concept. Fluid, curved lines are inspired by the soft 3D movement of light and geometry. The use of simple, flat and light fabrics is a reflection of this childlike approach. Some are bonded to create a fuller feel and a clean contrast in colour, whilst effectively manipulated overlays provide sculptural details. These elements create an effortless feel to this intelligent collection.

Women who cover themselves modestly, starting from the headscarf to loose clothing, first inspired this collection Modestia. References have been taken from women of various faiths, be it Muslims or Orthodox Christians, with the common concept of covering. Dressing modestly is now seen as being more interesting; the aim of the collection is to deliver a message that this can in fact be fashionable, fun and creative whilst looking dynamic. Prints and laser cutting are used to suggest pattern and lace, and style lines take influence from wrapping, using the unexpected asymmetry of drape in a more controlled way.

The house at the end of the lane has been abandoned for years. The gate is overgrown with ivy and the iron is rusting beneath. The trees in the garden are hundreds of years old and bare from the perils of winter. The branches sprawl along, tumbling down, forming intricate patterns as one intertwines with another and another....... The silhouette is bold and strong. It creates contrast; mystery lies within the parts that you can’t see, hidden within the blurred lines. Fabrics are luxurious but timeless. Silk, wool, and leather have been aged with subtlety and integrity, through print and surface processes.

‘One approach to understanding the role of sleep is to study the deprivation of it’ Inspired by the feelings and hallucinations of a sleep-deprived being, this collection is the 3D representation of those irrational moments when falling into a REM sleep. Sleep itself becomes a fantasy, the creation of a new dimension of desire. The unusual association of texture and feelings is represented using the transparency of organza and chiffon, fused with the heavy draping that rests against the metallic structure. As a whole, it embodies illusion and fluid sensitivity through the faded palette of grey and blue.

Exploring changes in modern society, DNA and the merging of races; this concept raises a question of identity – will we still be unique in 50 years time? Embracing the identities of many, the focus is on creating a collection of separates for the strong modern urban citizen. Design lines create a dialogue between fluid asymmetry and clean geometry. Flaming red trumpeting subtle surreal pencil-drawn prints, reflects the merging of the distorted crowd. Pencil skirts combine with strong jacket shapes to evoke elegant effortlessness. Clever details accentuate the grown-up feminine feel. Fabrics are modern and sharp, with digital prints and embellished beading.

Trees and bees are the two key inspirations emerging through this collection. Linear style lines, geometric shapes and prints are combined together to blend into an array of simple sophistication. Colour and print compliment the sharpness of the classic, neat and minimalist cuts that give this collection a refined look. Black, cream, mustard and aubergine, are used in conjunction with an edgy geometric print which has been inspired by the structure and the pattern of beehives. Fabrics are lightweight but strong and able to carry the structure of the pieces within this Spring/Summer 2014 womenswear collection.

This collection is inspired by the harsh reality of an eating disorder, which can leave the strong angular lines of the skeleton visible to the eye. Harsh awkward shapes are created around the joints - the shoulders and hips, which influence the use of tucks and gathers to create an organic, sculptural silhouette. Shapes are further enhanced by a dynamic print, complemented by the use of laser-cut detail, which mimic the print shapes. These techniques have been used though out the collection, created both digitally and naturally, providing depth to the garments with a powerful aesthetic.

Inspired by the natural and physical ways of been trapped, “Let Me Escape” is the 3D translation for the individual not wanting the moments experienced whilst in routine places. Escaping becomes a dream, the surrealism of new dimensions of choice. The association of texture and feelings is represented using the transparency of silk and denser cotton fabrics, fused with the indefinite ribbons that accentuate the long days. As a whole, it manifests illusion and fluid sensitivity through the plain white to the absorbant black colour palette. ‘Let Me Escape’- A surreal collection intense in delicacy created for tenacious women.

Greco Roman sculpture and Art Deco architecture in London is the foundation of this collection. Post-modern references build on this, creating an unusual and unique approach to women’s-wear. The bold geometry of Art Deco is juxtaposed against the broken lines of ancient ruins creating a striking visual that challenges normality. The somewhat boisterous technical shapes are balanced with softer frills and pleats. Neon tweed adds texture and depth, resulting in a statement collection that remains ultra feminine and wearable.

Frail Existence, Certain Demise. Life is precious; this shouldn’t be underestimated. We as individuals are damaged so easily, both emotionally and physically. Death is the only certainty we face in this futile cycle. This collection focuses on these two key elements; using ridged boning and structure, shapes are inspired by corsetry, coupled with delicate embellishment detailing to underline our decaying frailness. We move through life on a backdrop of washed out and dark colours that create a mystery around the garments and the subject matter, creating an eerie ambience.

A fusion of male and female clothing from the 17th century inspires this collection, Take Me Back. The focus of the collection is in the use of techniques such as layering, gathering and the contrasting of different fabric textures, such as wool, knit, satin and corduroy. Influences are huge silhouettes, layering of fabrics, men’s tailoring and the mixing of key classic pieces such as waistcoats. A sense of soft tailoring can be felt, as the simplicity of the look is accentuated by the clean but interesting cutting. The colour palette is strong, using only deep burgundy, reds and warm purple.

Solid black British wool and neatly lined binary embroidery, on crisp tailored jackets and huge Japanese trousers, give a strong robotic persona to the collection. This gradually transforms to a soft and subtle silhouette and colour palette, imitating how life changes when people find true love. Smooth skin-like silk and voluminous, richly layered organzas are hand dyed to mimic human skin and eyes. Round silhouettes accentuate the female form.

Cut Me to See Who I am‌ an aristocratic infused collection which explores the serial murders committed by Jack the Ripper in Whitechapel, London 1888. The identity of this calculated murderer is still unknown, which allows for this concept to be explored. It uses cutting lines and folds that represent the uniquely identifiable fingerprint and shapes that were carved into the victims’ bodies, combined with the hourglass silhouette. Fabrics and prints reflect those worn by both women and men at this time, in deep red, brown, mustard and grey tones to depict the eerie dark atmosphere of Victorian East London.

This collection is influenced by a spiritual belief that every human being has a soul, which evolves from our actions in previous lives. Some minerals and especially geodes are parallel to our souls, as they are formed in similar ways. These Earth’s treasures have inspired this concept - a hidden beauty beneath an ugly surface. The collection is experimental and focuses on texture, using an innovative technique of ‘burning’ to create a strong organic look, which is combined with clean and sharp lines. This evident contrast plays a crucial role in the overall collection’s silhouette.

Weapons, destruction and armoury have inspired a collection based on modern conflict. A combination of panel cuttings and diaphanous textures gives the feel of a strong yet luxurious look, with defined lines shaping around the body to enhance the powerful feel. A colour palette of browns, khaki greens and bold, strong gold has taken the military look to another level of extravagance. Chain mail and pieces of metal have been added to the fabric palette to give a more substantial feel of destruction, keeping the clean cut lines for a neat look of luxury.

Alluring sturdy silhouettes are created using strong fabrics. Sharp cuts give it a dynamic feel.

Silhouettes are inspired by traditional Korean costume mixed with the military, a reminder of the separation of North and South, and of the historical border of East and West Germany, where the designer was born and raised. Through plain fabrics and multi-coloured landscape prints a personal journey is explored and utilitarianism and sensitivity are juxtaposed. The contrast of earthy tones and pastel brights reflects the reality of being disassociated in the same territory, alongside the significant fall of the Berlin wall.

By recording “found compositions” using photography and mixed media she has created a series of fashion prints aimed towards a high-end womenswear market. As a textile designer she constantly seeks to find inspiration from looking at everyday things; exploring pattern, colour and aesthetic within discarded and unwanted objects.

The collection reflects her love of colour, surface embellishment and drawing skills through the use of both hand print techniques and Photoshop and illustrator.

Her main influence for the collection is born from observing the structure and style of Yinka Shonibare’s fashion pieces and art installations.

Working with a vibrant colour palette Tracey has combined butterfly motifs with ink and paint mixed media to produce her S/S 14 print collection: “Whirl in Butterflies”. By observing the movement and spectrum of colours found on butterfly wings her aim is to visualise this on her final designs. The inks used in her prints have a similar fragility and delicacy to butterflies – the bright colour palette enhances the overall contemporary look and feel of the collection.

Her final prints mix hand drawn motifs alongside surface textures and bleached backgrounds. Inspiration is taken from a wide variety of sources including wiring, binary coding, vintage cameras and computer keyboards. Her aim is to integrate digital with traditional in a series of quirky fashion prints.
