The International Study Centre is proud to announce that three of our participants who completed the Foundation Year have gone on to be showcased in a unique fashion performance, held by The School of Fashion.
from international students to celebrated designers
Toe, Ellen and Nynne studied at the International Study Centre before progressing to Istituto Marangoni. In July, they showcased their work in The School of Fashion’s show, “Under The Light”. This is an annual event where, after careful consideration, only the most creative graduates get the opportunity to present their designs. The event took inspiration from the concept of light as a symbol of new beginning, and showcased the work of 10 promising graduate designers.
creativity on the catwalk
Istituto Marangoni chose the best 10 fashion design graduates to take part in “Under The Light”, including three International Study Centre alumni, Toe, Ellen and Nynne. Their womenswear collection impressed an audience of industry experts.
Charlotte Gorse, Istituto Marangoni London School Director said: “We are very proud of being able to work with such international and talented students every day. Internationality and industry-led training are the signature marks of our teaching method, and the high standards of our students’ work in today’s fashion show definitely reflects that.”
what did the participants showcase?
- Toe’s work was inspired by marine life, with soft silhouettes and folds, and soft design structure.
- Ellen describes her collection as a diary of a broken girl looking for “hope”. Her inspiration comes from dancers, such as Martha Graham and Pina Bausch.
- Nynne’s collection is characterised by big silhouettes and detailed shoulder constructions. She has explored the symbolism around power dressing from the 1940’s, reflecting on its meaning and use for the modern woman today.
The success of our students highlights the practical fashion career preparation participants receive at the International Study Centre and Istituto Marangoni.
