Fashion students graduate with style

Last Saturday the fashion students from Vienna’s A-College held a fashion show for their graduating class at the MGC Modecenter. Austrian Times' Anita Matkovic went along to the event to find out what we can expect from tomorrow's designers:

As models walked the catwalk under dimmed lights to the rhythm of loud music blasting, a corner of the venue at MGC Modecenter was plastered with collaged posters of the designers’ creations, and on the other end were small food stands and bars.

The audience was an interesting mixture of people and it was surprisingly crowded. The 26 innovative designs being presented had a fast flow to them with about five to ten pieces being shown by each designer. The designs came in all shapes and sizes. The models came out wearing anything from formal, very innocent white dresses and tops to sheer pants, sheer tops, sheer everything, flowing with almost invisible fabric with a touch of harem like design and a fairytale feel to it.

Other designers presented their models with very dark, S&M inspired leather and chain looks, dangerously tight latex showing a lot of skin along with big hair and black lips and futuristic Starship-like aluminium coloured skin-tight dresses.

Some oddly futuristic designs, with over-exaggerated geometrical points going off in different directions, imposed on the rules of shape and structure on heavy wool-like coats. Another set of designers awed with surreal polka dotted trench coats that can be zipped up into the form of a cube and worn around the wrist, hats that resembled square-like wall decorations with unexpected lines and a high volume of colour on dresses with perfectly planned out lines in unexpected areas.

The students showed off their best in this fashion show which was heaven for any fashion lover, pleasantly surprising the anticipating crowd who seemingly couldn’t get enough of the architectural, soft, rigid, even overarching designs. The fresh creations from these students are more than professional, they are exuberant. These designers have a great way of bringing their wildest imaginations onto the runway and are a wonderful advancement to Austria’s already booming fashion scene; I’m looking forward to seeing what the future in fashion holds for these up and coming designers.
