FASHION 101** Raffles College Design graduates reveal their many talents in show

On the 5th December students from a leading design college in Sydney united to deliver an evening exhibition and stunning fashion show. About 120 graduates from Raffles College of Design and Commerce showcased their designs at a combined graduate exhibition.


Beginning at 6pm, the exhibition incorporated fashion, interior design, photography, animation, games design, new media and digital film, and multimedia design projects.


A special screening took place at 7pm and hilighted a range of creative works produced by multimedia, game design, and animation students.


The second part of the evening focused on garment and clothing creations with a live fashion show due to kick off at 8pm. The show, dubbed A Juncture of a Journey, brought together the work of 29 fashion students.


The fashion show was divided into for themes – Ashen, Utopia, Bohemian, and Sub-nation – allowing students to express their interpretations of each theme.


Drawing inspiration from natural disasters and destruction, designs in the Ashen category reflected a dark and moody theme. Utopia searches for calm after the storm and was underpinned by the desire for a more carefree world.


Garments in the Bohemian category focused on delicate materials like soft lace and lightweight chiffon to emulate the idea of transformation and a carefree attitude. The fourth category, Sub-nation, borrows from the concept of a new nation and looked to themes of recovery and joy through the application of bold prints and deconstructed garments.


The graduate exhibition took place at Carriageworks, housed in the old Eveleigh Rail Yards, where the distinctive nineteenth century industrial atmosphere of the former railway carriage and blacksmith workshops definitely added character to the event.


As the place where trains used to end their journey for repair, the venue is a fitting location for a group of students who have come from different directions to end their journey with a final stop at Carriageworks where they revealed their creations.
