Today's POP is Tui and she is ready to run the marathon.
The marathon being the Central Saint Martins internal show, which is fashion's equivalent to a marathon and as expected the students didn't disappoint. The shows (all three of them!) were a melting pot of pastiches borrowed from various cultures and reinterpreted into intricately knitted pieces, origami folded dresses, fluorescent printed fabrics and of course the more outre pieces such as a 17th century chair masquerading as a dress as well as a knitted horse head doubling as a sweater!
Highlights of the show included:
White tissue inspired dresses which lit up under UV light by Si Yi Huang.
Circle cut dress with Pollock inspired print by Liz Black.
Shaggy chic rug dress by Helen Price.
And the show stopper pieces by Sorcha O'Raghallaigh, who suspended her models onto 5 foot high stilts and resembled giant fairy figures in their oversized floral crochet dresses.
