London Fashion Week
X SHOW STUDIO SS21
"This has been an unbelievable year. The students and staff at University of Westminster, like the rest of the world, have been forced by Covid 19 to work in completely new ways and to work ten times harder, not only to produce the final collections, but to constantly problem solve, to pull together, to overcome. The work produced by the Class of 2021 is varied, beautiful, and accomplished. Most of the work was produced without access to college facilities and with tutorials conducted online. The students could have used this as an excuse to complain, to produce less, not to try so hard, not to experiment. Instead they rose up, they adapted, they pushed their creativity to even greater achievement, they used their solitude to dig deep and find out what they were capable of.
As a course we had to decide what to do about the degree show, and we decided together to use this time to experiment and explore fashion film. We partnered with SHOWstudio and launched our films online. Each film has a different director, mood and approach, mirroring photographic editorial and showing the variety of our graduate work.
The entire fashion team and students at University of Westminster invite you to celebrate with us the triumph of beauty and creativity over adversity, and the amazing talent and resilience of this years extraordinary graduates."
