Marking the high point of three and four years’ work, students from Regent’s University London’s fashion and design courses showcased their talents at the University’s Marylebone campuses during a private show on Thursday 14 May.
In addition to two fashion catwalk shows, students, staff and industry guests admired student achievements in fashion, design, marketing, interior design and communication design.
The evening also saw the presentation of two prizes. ‘The Little Greene Colour Award’ from independent paint and wallpaper company Little Greene went to final-year BA (Hons) Interior Design student, Denise Stoelzel.
“This is a great way to finish University. My project looks at a business referral organisation. I’ve designed the building’s main hub as a round space which gets bigger towards the top, and opens up the area for meetings and interaction.”
Ruth Mottershead, Marketing Manager at Little Greene, added:
“The projects we’ve seen have been brilliant. The environmental elements on show have particularly resonated with us because we’re a very eco-friendly brand, using natural pigments to make water-based paints.”
There were also words of congratulation from Andrew Langford, Communication Design, Programme Director. He said:
“One example of our students’ hard work is Melissa Delteil’s set of large-scale moving images, inspired by fears towards genetic science, animals and their hybridisation.
“Melissa also won ‘The John O’Connor Annual Student Prize,’ awarded to the final year student who has produced the most engaging and challenging work shown in the exhibition.
Andrew continued: “This show is a time for celebration. It’s about saying ‘job well done’ and leaving our graduates well-equipped for their future careers.”
Regent’s University London’s School of Fashion & Design shows are now open until Friday 29 May and members of the public are welcome to view student achievements and displays at the University’s Marylebone campus buildings.
