Middlesex BA Graduate Show

Malene Oddershede Bach

Held in the uber cool Truman Brewery off Brick Lane, the Middlesex degree show was set to be rather high brow affair. Absolutely rammed, and with nowhere to sit, we spent the whole show craning our necks, but have no fear, it was worth the strain.

Liesemarie Schulte-Kitzing opened the show with muted green sheer dresses appliquéd with matching tonal flowers. Tan leather panels, connected with silver rivets, added an edgy structure, and the collection was accented by a bright red rose headdress, complete with delicate, mysterious veil.

Elegance was the order of the day for Katrina Ferrari, with her collection of simple, draped jerseys in long, fluid lines. The long lengths continued with knotted, twisted dresses, accessorised with shaggy, sheepskin shoes and ornate wicker hairbands.

Malene Oddershede Bach closed the show with black and yellow reptilian graphic prints in long, streamlined skirts and dresses. Skirts folded back into a zip detail, creating a body con silhouette and cut out sections also featured. Classic, cinched in waists, with chunky leather jackets thrown over the top, completed the look.

The Middlesex Degree Show will run until Monday 7th June. The show is part of the Free Range initiative, launched and supported by the Truman Brewery. The Middlesex Graduate Show will be repeated during Graduate Fashion Week on Tuesday 8th at Earls Court. Don’t miss out!
