Fashion #19 - Curtin University Fashion Design Show 2012 - Arcadia

 It's that time of the year again where all the graduation and exhibitions shows are on for the university students of Western Australia. This is the first time i have attended a university fashion show, i was amazed with the amount of people at front of house. The catwalk was formed into a square shape which was different, I would have loved to get some shots higher up on the stands to show the full space of the show. Majority of the garments were mostly neutral tones, a lot of black and darker colours. My close friend Steph Fulham was showcasing in the show, I shot her collection in a studio which i will post on here later. Her colours were really bright, using blues,yellows and grey. They were all digitally printed in the US and shipped over here. She won one of the awards tonight and i think she gets a editorial with Sheila Magazine. Reason i really like to watch the student work is because at this current time the students are still very creative with their designs, they push the boundaries to create some amazing pieces. Later down the track they tend to swing towards commercial side to focus on business of their label. I will be photographing a few more graduate shows next few weeks, cant wait to see what they got for us.
