Celebrating the Fashion Design Class of 2020

Fashion has gone digital! Due to social distancing restrictions to stop the spread of Covid 19 we have seen international fashion weeks, trade shows, fairs and forums go ‘online’ to present designers, product and ideas to inspire and inform the industry. We are excited to see that this same approach has been applied to graduating Fashion Design students.

Here are just a few of the opportunities for WSA Fashion Design students…

On 8thJuly the British Fashion Council will present a Graduate Preview event presenting Fashion Design student work to the Fashion industry. There are some exciting events from industry leaders happening through the day for graduating students to tune into also.

From 9thJuly we will launch our full online degree show on Artsthread to celebrate the achievements of our graduating BA Students at Winchester School of Art to an international audience for the first time.

i-D and ARTSTHREAD have launched a global graduate showcase initiative for the class of 2020 in any art and design related discipline. The first presentation of shortlisted graduates will take place from 15thAugust. Winners and runners-up will be announced and featured on the ARTSTHREAD platform and well as featured on worldwide i-D channels from late September/October

In addition to this i-D and ARTSTHREAD are presenting a wide range of graduate support led activities, webinars, masterclasses and releasing practical information on how to experiment, curate and upload your creative journey, allowing all students to express their diversity and raw creative process.

In embracing these new opportunities and ways of thinking we can see a tide change for presenting all Fashion Graduates in the future to come.
