I was invited to the inaugural MDIS Graduate Fashion Festival a couple months back, a one-night-only fashion show at the National Design Centre. The concept of “Maze” was the evening’s theme and metaphor for the students’ creative journey, from the marked entrance – the start of their collection/marketing project, through branches and alleys – the various stages of the development process; to the achievement of the goal – the successful completion of their collections and projects. This was the theme of the entry exhibition where guests could immerse themselves in a 5-stage journey, namely research, conceptualisation, execution, deadline and completion.

While there was an exhibition by the Fashion Marketing and Branding students, the student Fashion Show was a highlight of the evening with 6 graduating students sending their collections down the runway.

Noella Foo (Singapore). Inspired by children traumatic experiences, designed a street- style collection that mixes mini-sized and over-sized garments covered by colourful graphic embroideries.

Congrats to all the graduating students. I find that most of the concepts are well-executed and not only are the garments playful and fun to look at, many pieces are wearable in real life too.
