Sat 9th June: Middlesex University Graduate Fashion Show - Melissa Tofton

Melissa Tofton sent her menswear down the catwalk accessorised in unbelievably gigantic backpacks with the largest being this ginormous green gorilla face swag bag.  I recognised the 3-D relief panel work from a beautiful baggy black jumper that I had seen earlier in the day at LCF, viewing fashion films made by 1st year "Creative Direction" students.  Well done to both schools for syncing up in this way and helping each other create work for all to benefit - the outcome you can see above, named "Ninja Fury".  I wish such formats had existed when I was at college - exciting times for the new generation!  See some of Melissa's mood boards, sketches and samples of knitting fur over on her Tumblr diary.
