MA Fashion Show 2019: All at Once
8 June 2019 | 11am 5pm
Cork Street Galleries, Mayfair, London W1S 3NG
A showroom made up of talks, walks and performances that investigate fashion as designed identities, All at Once brings together the work of over 50 students across MA Fashion Womenswear, Menswear, Knitwear, Footwear, Accessories & Millinery.
As a national climate emergency has been declared by the UK Parliament, All at Once, asks urgent questions that address the fashion industry’s impact on people and the planet. Students have focused on creating new, wholly sustainable, materials based on biotechnology, found objects and gentle handmade pieces made using ancient craft techniques; equally looking to investigate the digital software that can ease our use, re-examine identity and form neo-design areas, systems and apparel.
Zowie Broach, Head of Fashion, RCA said:
‘The RCA MA Fashion 2019 cohort are the new wave of designers – they are deeply precise and precious about what they put into the world. They ask questions about gender, form and culture – in both the real world and digital. It’s a rallying cry against spiraling into a vortex of the disposable and counteracts rigid seasonal cycles in fashion.’
