This March we photographed the Glasgow School of Art’s 72nd annual third-year undergraduate fashion-show. Third-year students from the specialisms textile design print, embroidery, knit, weave and fashion design showcased their work on the catwalk in the Vic assembly hall on Scott Street.


The show opened with the 2nd year Fashion Design student’s black and white collections. The contrasting shades made for a stunning entrance.


As always, the photographer gets the best seats for the show. 😉

Second-year fashion design

Within the main event, the third year fashion and textile designers unveiled their collections examining the idea of contradictions. Their work explored contrasting concepts such as absence/presence, elite culture/popular culture, bound/unbound and many more. It was great to see the creative ways in which students approached shape, colour, fabric, technique and silhouette.

This year’s show included the second ever winner of a prestigious internship with Ralph Lauren in New York, Melody Uyanga Ramsay, beating over 2000 applicants. Well done! Melody explains: My project is exploring the functionality of Mongolian nomadic living in contrast to today’s luxury accessory industry. I hope to address fashion’s moral status and offer solutions for a more sustainable future.”
