My first forages into the world of fashion for this concept show have left me exhilarated and excited at the possibilities that are open to me for this event! I have decided on a venue - Freuds in Oxford, a converted church that has such a great atmosphere of mystique and intrigue and is even better at night! I already know that set up is going to be a total nightmare though, since there is only one entrance/exit and one room for guests. Ah well, better to have a calamitous but spectacular show than an organised boring one! (in my opinion anyway!)
I emailed the RCA first, since my mum's the librarian there, to send a message around the whole mailing list. I have had 4 responses so far, and only one of them is a fashion student! One of the non-fashionistas is Jane Bowler, who makes sculptural mixed media textile jewellery - much better to have a look at her workthan just hear about it.
Here's a little teaser from Grace Du Prez, confirmed to show:
