GSA Textiles and Fashion Promenade

Preview by Nadine Walker | 12 Sep 2012

Pushing boundaries and inspiring new generations of artists and designers, Glasgow’s School of Art has successfully honed the talents of many creative individuals over the years. This September, the public will see GSA's very first graduate Degree Show from the textile and fashion school. A notable date in the diary for every Scot's little black fashion diary!

The fortnight-long event will run from the 15 to 29 September, with the fashion and textiles promenades taking place on the evening of Thursday 27 September.

Housed over two floors in The Lighthouse, the Degree Show will feature the work from all disciplines (Fine Art, Architecture, Design Innovation, Communication Design, Sound + the Moving Image, Animation, Graphics, Illustration and Photography) with Textiles + Fashion in the 1st floor gallery and tower room. The annual Textiles + Fashion promenades will be staged in a catwalk format in the 1st floor gallery.

Previous fashion showcases have always shone a light on the captivating talent of the GSA fashion students. This year’s crop will feature work from an international group of designers, with students hailing from Colombia, Canada, Japan, Taiwan (and of course, Scotland!) Each student has designed 5 outfits (between 10-16 garments). Show highlights include a cotton menswear collection in tones of white and a womenswear collection inspired by 60s design and Soviet architecture.

Expect a selection of beautiful textiles, inspiring silhouettes and intriguing colour palettes.
