Havering College
For this year's final show, Level 3 Fashion students and staff came together to produce a series of videos showcasing their individual final major project fashion lines in different locations around our Ardleigh Green campus. Each student got the opportunity to provide art direction and chose the music for a 30 second video, creatively responding to their allocated shooting location with the trend and design of their fashion line in mind.

It was a fantastic portrayal of each of our designs with the scenes linking to our chosen trends. I felt that each of the videos gave us great experience in a way of styling and directing how we wanted our work to be seen. I was delighted with the final video as in my video I managed to get the theme across of romance and love in a Pre-Raphaelite setting. My family and friends all enjoyed the showreel and can't believe how professional it looked.

Joana Giedrikaite - Bedroom Eyes

Celine, Givenchy and Dior were in Joana’s sight when designing her collection of garments. With a combination of empire line and princess style, these garments have lace overlays giving the bodices a soft, elegant appearance. Styled simply with heels and fascinator, these garments would be the collection of choice for young wedding guests.

Sophie Monteiro - Bedroom Eyes

The glamour of burlesque and the notion of underwear as outerwear has brought Sophie to a colour palette of pink sugared almonds coupled with the silkiness and shimmer of satin. The screen-printed rose motif brings a sense of elegance which, together with the princess line and rouleaux straps, makes her garments a must-have in the wardrobes of young party-goers.

Patrycja Sajdak - Isn’t It Romantic?

Inspired by the Romantic period and the ethos behind Bohemianism, Patrycja proposes a collection of garments that, with simple lines, lets the softly-hued satin do all the talking. The variety of hem length coupled with daring plunge v-neck offer alternatives with sleeve options while the embellishment with floral print provides a focus. Chloé and Zandra Rhodes have been Patrycja’s guide meaning that Patrycja will be the go-to designer for trendy professionals.

Charlotte Tabram - Bedroom Eyes

Charlotte’s collection is based on the allure of satin and lace and a soft, pastel colour palette. The full slip style with lace straps and elegant princess line reminiscent of burlesque is embellished with a simple screen-printed bow motif at centre front. Sexy and alluring, this collection shows off the figure and could be styled up for a wedding or cocktail party with heels and perhaps a pashmina.

Renée Maltwood - Latin Class

An abundance of flounces, screen-printed butterflies and scalloped finishes are features of Renee’s collection which, together with shimmering satin, show off the softly-hued mauves. The rouleaux straps and princess line offer an understated elegance that dazzle on the dance floor.

Danny Wallace - Bedroom Eyes

Danny’s collection is centred on the exploration of the concept of underwear as outerwear but with an eye on modesty. The main influence for this collection is based on the materials associated with intimate apparel such as lace and silk while choosing a muted colour palette of gold and black. Having explored the collections of McQueen and Valentino, Danny has produced a range of special occasion wear for contemporary young professionals who favour his close eye for detail.

Chloe Clay - Isn’t It Romantic?

Based on a traditional rendering of the notion of romance, Chloe has designed and produced full-length dresses that carry large-scale appliqué motifs symbolic of this trend such as blooms and cupids with their bows and arrows poised. Influential to Chloe’s ideas were the collections of London’s National Portrait Gallery, the Pre-Raphaelites and designers including Dolce & Gabbana and Erdem. These dresses would look equally as good in a ballroom as they do in woodland.

Gabriele Raudonyte - Blue Jeans Baby

Gabriele started researching the beginnings of denim, indigo dyeing and the cultural history of jeans. Together with an investigation into key Hollywood icons such as James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne, Gabriele has considered London street style and the bubble up to key contemporary fashion designers such as Martin Margiela and Gucci. Embellished with screen printed and studded details, Gabriele’s collection is of understated, wearable fashion for today’s young creatives.
