Premium womenswear tradeshow Scoop is to collaborate with the Royal College of Art for its upcoming spring 13 edition.
As part of the show, which takes place at London’s Saatchi Gallery from July 8-10, graduates from the Royal College of Art’s School of Material, which comprises of fashion, textiles, millinery, jewellery and ceramics, will exhibit work.
A selection of 2012 RCA graduates showing at Scoop include fashion womenswear graduate Rebecca Thomson, fashion menswear graduate Alex Mullins, ceramics and glass graduate Zemer Peled, fashion menswear graduate Peter Bailey, fashion footwear graduate Aku-Petteri Backstrom and fashion millinery graduate Hannah Morgan.
“Our first collaboration with the RCA brings the cutting edge of home grown design into the fold; making Scoop the place for the industry to snap up the next Ossie Clark or Christopher Bailey this summer,” said Karen Radley founder of Scoop.
“This academic year saw the creation of the new School of Material which comprises Ceramics & Glass, Fashion, Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery, and Textiles,” added Professor Wendy Dagworthy RCA Dean of the School of Material and head of fashion.
“As the name implies, an overriding concern with material and form unites these disciplines. Exhibiting the work of graduates from the School at Scoop in the Saatchi Gallery is an exciting and wonderful opportunity for them to gain relevant exposure.”
The RCA’s installation will be located on the Mezzanine Floor at Scoop.
