Fashion in Motion: Central St Martins Graduates 2002

September 2002

Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings catwalk couture to a wider audience by modelling it against the beautiful backdrop of the Museum.

Students from as far afield as Indonesia and Argentina come to study on the Fashion Course at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design. Other alumni include John Galliano, Hussein Chalayan and Stella McCartney. The show at the V&A Fashion in Motion in September 2002 was an eye-catching blend of funky and bold, classical and stylish, from the rainbow-hued designs of Ayten Gasson’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ collection go Leilli Morshed’s dramatic reinterpretation of Muslim women’s dress. Adrian Appiolaza, whose designs earned him 2002’s coveted award for best womenswear, showed his collection of beautiful gaucho inspired jersey dresses.

Heroes and heroines of deep space. Eccentric cutting in leather wool in black, bottle green and ivory.

Claudine Abou-Sawan

This student has created her own decorative textiles using seeds, plastic mosaics and plaits of hair. The shapes are inspired by Josephine Baker and Nancy Cunard.

This collection has plundered the riches of several continents over may millennia for its inspiration. Sumptuous fabrics and dramatic silhouettes.
