BA Graphic Design second years have spent the last few weeks imagining what it would be like to be on a hybrid Fashion and Graphic Design course. They designed and made items of clothing – approaching the task with a graphic design methodology. The project culminated in a fashion show which they named Zip File and took place in the Crypt under St Giles Church.
Projects included anti-consumerist statements written on a giant receipt come shawl by Natasha Smith-Langridge. Alice Watkins made a suit from J-cloths and suitcase from dish sponges – playing with the idea of domestic labour and the uniform of business. A V-neck top and an A-line skirt by Katherine Marriott, and Toby Dexter made a suit of tassels, playing on the idea of notice board man with a van adverts with tear off slips.
