University of Huddersfield Graduate Fashion Show 2016 #InspiredHuddersfield

by - Wednesday, June 15, 2016



A stunning collection designed by Huddersfield University’s fashion graduates.
The audience filled with proud friends and family at the setting of the Laurence Batley Theatre with the stars of the future offering plenty of new creative talent this evening.

The first look was all about the monochrome palette of a two-piece pinstriped number followed, by a seas of sheer black with a modern take on the bomber jacket with a lux sports touch alongside a V shaped sheer skirt which finished of the black dress.

Pleats came upon the mini pinstriped skirts whilst, a palette of white came crisp and clean.


Denim became a feature base for oversized white and red chunky knitwear.
The knitwear continued to feature with a bobbly knitted jumper amongst the checked black, brown, and cream mannish coats which filled the runway. Staying with the masculine feel of the part of the collection loose trousers and simple yet clean lines were added by the oversized tailoring from the shirts. Finished off with the outerwear being an oversized shape but with a slim cut feature. 

For the boy’s it was all about the boiler suit, two toned shirts, wool blended coats with embellished lapels and ruffled knitwear. For the gym a classic take of the tracksuit came from the sportswear influence.






For more of trendsetter look a pop of the 60’s and 70’s came from the oversized sunglasses, shift dressers, the traditional colour palettes of them era’s and of course the use of the clashing of prints too. A classic inspiration from Chanel’s traditional suit jacket became a unique feature in white.




The graduates used a mixture of materials and prints throughout the collection from sequins, sheer fabrics, faxu fur, floral and zig zag prints to take a twist of a new direction on the traditional pieces you would find in a ready to wear collection and in your closet.



For eveningwear the graduates choose a more delicate approach with a shortened version of a ballerina tulle skirt whilst, sweet heart necklines and floaty skirts finished off the dressers. On the other hand, a more grunge feel was worked through the addition of tartan and lace placed together on bodices combined with clear pvc skirts or a cape.

Thinking literally was also out of the box with the final part of the collection featuring the new take on swimwear. Which was interesting to see how playful you can be with fashion.

It was a strong collection made from the fashion graduates who showed at tonight’s show.

I wish you all the best of luck for your future careers.
