Fashion Show 2016: Video

The RCA Fashion Show was presented outside the College’s Kensington campus on 9 June 2016, for the first time in nearly 20 years. Graduating Menswear, Womenswear, Knitwear, Footwear and Accessories students showcased their designs in the abandoned Averard Hotel in Lancaster Gate – a site of layered histories. 

The venue is truly unique and poised for its next reinvention, making it an apt setting for the presentation of the students’ work, which too is highly individual, layered with past, present and speculative future narratives.

A Kinetic Salon, the show offered an ephemeral experience for one moment only with one look per student: a reveal of their excellence in an intimate setting where you see and feel every ounce of that look.
