As Graduate Fashion Week drew to a close, yesterday morning the Royal College of Art staged its own MA Fashion show at the Henry Moore gallery. The thirty-six strong class of 2009 delivered collections packed full of technical brilliance, with the execution and finish to match. In menswear Bronwen Marshall’s impressive cutting and piecing came together to produce graphic shirts that were abstract whilst beautiful, despite his inspiration deriving from the horrific facial injuries of World War 1. Whilst the graphic theme continued across the pathways in both use of prints and shape, there was a comic element to Matthew Miller’s skeletal shirts, which played with the 'irony of masculinity'. Graphic prints and chunky knits seemed to somewhat dominate the catwalk, and some womenswear students embraced a futuristic theme: Rachael Barrett’s silicone rubber dresses, David Richard Fraser’s play on the refraction of light were cohesive, Jennifer Selden’s boldly colored and architectural designs. A personal favorite was Siofra Murphy, who fused texture and print to create a simplistic yet delicate collection.
