Metamorphosis Student Showcase at LMFF

Runways that celebrate the next crop of emerging designers are usually interesting. We always hope to the contrary, however, due to the commercial realities of the fashion industry, final year projects may be among the last collections that these young creatives have full control over and can be somewhat free to be edgy or plain outrageous in what they present. It gives the audience a sneak peek to the future, a hint to their potential and if the student is already brilliant it shows us an original design aesthetic that will soon be everywhere.

The line up for the first ever Metamorphosis parade at LMFF consists of Alexis Belcher, Sarah Schofield, Michelle Czech, Sarah Macdonell, Joanna Ford, Harmony Lam, Alicia Gramsbergen, Nikolina Kucan and Sonya Kraan (where are all the new males?). Mostly RMIT alumni, many of the names will be familiar to those who attended the Mixed Tape parades side A and B at last year’s Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. Let’s hope the LMFF keeps up this new tradition in support of our local fashion fledglings.
