Graduate Show 2021 Showcase

Featured: 'I Have a Dream' by Rita Rodrigues

Our BA (Hons) Fashion and Textile Design Class of 2021 have been on a very challenging and creative adventure, beginning several years ago and ending during a global pandemic. It's led to an extraordinary variety of collections that illustrate our University's research themes of sustainability and environment, health and well-being, democratic citizenship, and future technologies. 

Among the prominent themes of the showcase are bioplastics that allow garments to return to the earth, crafting to support mental health, and concepts of uncertainty, protest and gender, as well as humankind's relationship with technology and their houses.

Across sportswear, outerwear, art-wear, and formal wear, our students have combined new technologies such as digital pattern cutting, animation and CLO3D with traditional embroidery and garment construction skills, as well as up-cycled and 'grown' materials. 

A new generation of Portsmouth pioneers are ready to transform fashion.
