Leeds College of Art Graduate Fashion Show

Have you ever been sat on the FROW for a live catwalk?
Well, after the end of year fashion show by graduates from Leeds College of Art, I can now say that I have. Sitting right next to fashion journalists from local newspapers, I saw the show from an arm's length, and I felt pretty important to be honest.

What some people probably don't know is that Leeds used to be a very important city when it came to the textile industry back in the day, so it feels right that there is a popular art college in the city that plays a big role for young people's creativity.

Since I moved to Leeds almost 7 years ago, the city has had a massive facelift, and the focus is without a doubt on fashion. Nowadays, Leeds can proudly call itself fashion capital of the north, and many claim it's the best city to shop for fashion after London.

The graduate fashion show by the students from Leeds College of Art was indeed very creative, and the collections included trends such as whites, feathers, androgynous fashion, florals, denim and leather. One collection was even created from used outdoor equipment, such as tents.

The fact that the show was held in the iconic building of Corn Exchange, which is a hub for small independent fashion boutiques, really added greatness to the show, and the atmosphere was amazing.
