Newcastle Fashion Week is in full swing and what better way to celebrate than to showcase your own designs on the catwalk?
Northumbria’s Graduate Fashion Show was held last night (May 13) at the Baltic in Newcastle, with a whole load of talented individuals and some serious design envy.
One collection in particular definitely caught my eye, created by student Jodi Worbley. A Womenswear collection full of fantasy and awe, it was one not to be missed.
As the first model strutted down the catwalk, the eerie melody of Tiptoe Through The Tulips by Tiny Tim echoed in the background, creating a rather creepy atmosphere. The outfits took on a modern appeal that seemed inspired by Victorian carousels on garments in splashes of fiery pinks and oranges.
Silhouettes seemed inspired by both the ‘50s and ‘70s with puffed skirts, flamboyantly shaped shirts and wide-legged trousers in sickly peach and yellow. One model wore a jet black, three-quarter sleeved crop top with a smoky eye palette to create a startling contrast.
Accessories consisted of a small, hand-made carousel and a baby pink cut-out basket perfect for the beach.
The student seems to have created a SS14 collection perfect for the woman with a bit of daring edge, a person who isn’t afraid to look dressed up for a rather Alice In Wonderland, fairy-tale setting.
