Eleven undergraduate students showed their collections on the opening day of London Fashion Week, each showing six outfits. Course Director, Andrew Groves is leading a radical rethink of how fashion education is delivered and has restructured the Westminster course to align with the international fashion calendar.
Groves said “I have long believed that fashion education needs to provide our students with the most realistic and industry-ready educational experience. By showing their collections in February rather than June, it enables our accomplished final year students to become truly part of the industry. This bold development also allows us to build on our world-class internship programme: after the second year of the BA Fashion Design course, students work for two seasons with leading international fashion houses and designers, allowing them to experience where they might fit in this diverse and exciting industry.”
