Graduate Fashion Week 2013: Zandra Rhodes Catwalk Textile Award

Kirandeep Bassan, Northampton University

This year’s Textile Award went to Northampton University’s Kirandeep Bassan, with her brightly coloured womenswear collection. Her use of paint-stroke effects gave a sense of randomness to each look, while bold primary colours backed up this modern art effect. It was good to see a print design that felt truly personal and crafted. Fabric-wise, draped silhouettes in billowing silks could have left the collection feeling somewhat ‘art teacher does couture’, but sharper cuts were on show, with a rusty orange and pale blue parka-style jacket demonstrating a commercial eye and artistic flair.
