EDINBURGH fashion students showcased their years work yesterday in a glamorous fashion show at the Edinburgh College of Art.

Hundreds gathered to watch the event, which featured professional models strutting their stuff in a variety of luxurious fabrics and elaborate costumes.

The show represents the culmination of a year’s hard work for many students, and for some it is the final show of their degree.

Many will hope to go on to a successful career in one of the fashion industry’s “big four” cities of Milan, London, Paris and New York City.

The show runs from Wednesday 6th May until the 9th, and is widely regarded as a key date in the Capital’s cultural calendar.

Among the collections was an exclusive range of Scottish fabrics from the Borders-based Lochcarron of Scotland.


Robert Gillan, associate head of the design school at the college, said: “This year’s show features an innovative range of fashion collections from the only fashion course in Scotland to show on the runway at Graduate Fashion Week in London.

“It will also showcase performance costume work, as well as presenting collaborative projects across a range of year groups from fashion, textile and costume.

“As always the students will exploit their excellent design, pattern cutting and garment making skills.”
