London fashion week, graduates and their exposure

Just a brief note of what some of our graduates have been up to in London fashion week.

William Chambers Scottish accessory designer of the year

"I love supporting local talent. Being Scottish, theres an unusually grand sense of pride I feel when another Scot does well and with William Chambers there's no difference. He has been invited by the British Fashion Council to exhibit as part of Stephen Jones' 'Headonism' so today I took a jaunt into the showroom that was filled with hats on tripods. It is quite something. With a range of floral and geometric shapes on display, I could see a truly credible progression from his past work, without leaving behind his trademark elegance and poise. The only thing that I did question was the placement ofCharlie Le Mindu beside William Chambers - though, in a bizarre way I think they complimented each other."

Russian born artist and designer. After leaving Russia, Larisa has stayed in France and Spain, and she finally ended up in Scotland, in Edinburgh where she is permanently based since 2001.

She post graduated from Heriot-Watt University in 2011 as a Master of Arts in Fashion and Textile Design. At the end of her MA Degree she has been awarded as 'The Best Design Project' working with wool, from the Worshipful Company, with Woolmen's Award.

Russian – born, UK based designer, Larisa has found inspiration and direction in her own national identity, where her main point of influence came from her childhood memories and love of nature.

She is fascinated by natural textures, shapes and colours. She translates this into forms in such a way that they have a unique contemporary style.
Through her art she can bring people closer to nature by using different textures, textiles and forms, be it through digital, fashion garment or medium art.

Emerging designer GUZOVAART will be showcasing at Fashions Finest London Fashion week show 18 - 19 Westbury Hotel Conduit Street, Mayfair, London.
