Concept to Catwalk

London is one of the greatest fashion hubs in the world. East London specifically has a rich tradition of textile manufacture, from silk weaving and imported textiles in the docks, through to the present day contemporary fashion emerging from this part of the Capital. East London is a centre of creativity and enterprise with a growing technology sector.  This project aims for students to bring together stories of east London’s textile heritage with visions of its technology-led future to explore how fashion moves forward through enterprise and innovation. 

The challenge was to design a collection of clothing that reflects twenty-first century lifestyles and technology-led innovation in fashion.

In April 2015 the eight finalist designs were showcased at a fashion show held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where the overall winner Ayeisha Khalifa was announced.
