Winchester School of Art is renowned for the host of immensely talented designers who graduate from the school each year and they’ve become equally renown for their annual Future Feast, held this year at Soho’s Vinyl Factory.

D4S_5957An innovative event, Future Feast offers a great platform for showcasing the very best graduate talent the school has to offer from the Fashion Marketing and Fashion & Textile Design programmes at the Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton. Setting themselves apart from other programmes Future Feast is an industry focused event that concentrates on employability and exposure to professionals from brands such as Victoria Beckham, Gap, M&S, Nike, Harrods, Cos and Topman to name a few. This kind of widespread industry exposure is invaluable to graduates focusing on employability.

As well as an array of creative talent to explore, there was also a Fashion & Textiles catwalk show to display the graduate’s talents in motion and the evening was rounded off with an awards ceremony held my celebrated womenswear designer Michael Van Der Ham. Winners from the night included Jasmine Broughton, winner of the Fashion Textiles Award and Christine Xu, winner of the Fashion Direction Award.

With thousands of students graduating from Fashion courses each year, the most focus is often given to the most outrageous designs, so it’s both refreshing and illuminating to see a the Winchester School of Art invest in the future of their graduates rather than letting them get lost in the noise.

A consummate multi-tasker who plans on taking over the world of fashion one story at a time, I adore the romance of historical fashion as much as the conceptual rhythm of London’s rising talents and devote my time between writing and designing my fantasy wardrobe. With a style that’s Dior’s New Look meets Holly Golightly, I’ve never met a full skirt or a tiara that I didn’t immediately fall in love with and firmly believe that high heels, lipstick and a little poise are all daily essentials. Why wait for a special occasion! As The Bite Magazine’s Media Correspondent, I invite you to follow me as I travel the globe to bring you the latest catwalk reviews, luxury fashion, the crème de la crème of the beauty industry, the hottest new restaurants, hotels, literature and so much more…
