This season of London Fashion Week, graduating designers from the Bachelor and Master fashion design program at The Swedish School of Textiles presented their Spring/Summer 2019 collection at Freemason’s Hall.

Seven MA graduates and seventeen BA graduates showcased their collections based on the future of fashion. Each collection explored themes of power, gender and identity, with the aim to break pre-conceived ideas of what defines fashion. By exploring varying topics such as gender-issues, fetishes, awkwardness, identity and 20th-century anti-war movements, all the collections were incredibly innovative and eye-catching.

The designers used alternative materials such as plastisol, wool and furniture and focused on adding volume, pattern, prints, colour, hand weaving, draping and padding to their work. The twenty-four collections were creative, colourful and diverse, with each individual collection having a unique story to tell.

Backstage Tales wishes a huge congratulations to all the graduates. Take a look at their collections below:
