If you have Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, can read, or follow Kim Kardashian, you will know the past few weeks have been fashion and street style packed. But it wasn’t just New York, London, Milan and Paris who were treated to a touch of glamour, last week first and second year fashion students at Manchester School of Art put on a show to rival even the most experienced designers.

2Resembling a Topshop Unique show, it was sleek, experimental and most of all cool. Would you expect anything less from Manchester?

But the show was not months in the making as newly graduated Natalie Dawson explained, “The students put together the hair, the make-up and the looks in less than a week. The looks were styled by the students and then colour ordered to create the fluidity of the looks. The show was completely student organised.”

The 74 looks in the show mixed outsider art with the work of the students, taking inspiration from 1950’s teddy boys and the work of Daniel Johnston. While surprisingly, the gorgeous models were the students or friends of.

And with every great show, comes great street style. The ultimate proof that Manchester may be the coolest

city on the earth.

Students, Hannah Elizabeth Dawson and Jordan Allen, whose work was featured in the show described it as “stressful but successful”, while rocking Betsy Johnson inspired street style.

The show I witnessed was truly inspiring, to see the ideas of the future designers in the flesh is not only exciting but also an insight to the people who will be shaping the way we dress in ten years’ time.

The show was anything but amateurish and represented the fun that comes with fashion. Keep the date open for next year!
