Central Saint Martins BA Fashion Show 2009

One of the most anticipated dates on the fashion calendar, Central Saint Martins Fashion BA once again put on a show that displayed the vast range of talent from over 40 forward thinking students, many of whom seem to be kicking off recession blues with power dressing responses.

In these leaner-than-lean times graduates should choose to move away from a slim line into the bulk of expansive metres of painstakingly wrought fabric, whether outsize proportions, billowing trains or vast crinolined skirts.

Indeed, volume was a general trend, with bold and hefty shoulders, low slung crotches and a few plumped feather-stuffed puffa’s.

The winning collection was Dutch fashion print student Marie Hill, who sent out a series of fluorescent-techno bodycon cocktail dresses, with the body divided by contour lines of delicate folds with spider webs taut at the back. Hill won L’Oreal Professionnel’s 1st prize for her designs which certainly epitomised the power woman.
