Russian Fashion Success
27th March 2018
News in concerning three of our current third years.
Generation Next 2018 is one of the biggest fashion exhibitions in the Russian fashion industry and is held annually in St. Petersburg. The exhibition unites students from the associated fashion disciplines of costume design, textiles, graphic design in fashion, fashion photography and fashion illustration. Each year young designers from all over Russia and the world enter and this year saw 140 projects submitted for possible exhibition. It was the first year that some of our students submitted work nominated by Course Leader Trudie Ballantyne and all three that entered images were successful.
Sarah Whelan was awarded a nomination of fashion photography with her project Savage documenting the club based in East London (Image 1 below) created during the book section of her Final Major Project. Whilst, Emma Chard (Image 2 below) and Sam Deaman (Image 3 below) received diplomas as competition finalists. There work was also exhibited in the main hall (see above) as part of the event. Trudie Ballantyne also received a diploma for preparing students in the professional field of fashion photography.
Associate Professor at the St.Petersburg State University of Industrial Technology and Design Alexandra Savelyeva who invited our students to enter their work this year was so impressed by the images that she would like other students to continue submitting their work over the coming years.
