Ulster University showcased Northern Ireland’s most exciting emerging designers at its recent annual Graduate Fashion Show.
Taking place in the stunning St Anne’s Cathedral, 31 Ulster University students showcased their work from a range of disciplines including knit, weave, print and embroidery with influences taken from nature, sustainability and equality.
Alison Gault, Senior Lecturer at Ulster University’s Belfast School of Art said: “Ulster University’s Graduate Fashion Show is considered to be one of the leading graduate shows nationally and gives the fashion and textile industry an opportunity to view the work of the talent of tomorrow. The show celebrated the creativity and vision of our students and highlights the significant contribution that Ulster University makes to design both at home and abroad.”
Adrianne Shirlow, a final year Textile Art, Design and Fashion student at Ulster University commented: “Ulster University’s Textile Art, Design and Fashion course is dedicated to creating an environment which encourages young designers to really take risks and produce collections to fulfil their creative potential, making it a very exciting environment to learn in. The graduate fashion show was a momentous occasion as it was the culmination of years of hard work and I loved having the opportunity to showcase my design skills and creativity to industry representatives.”
