Welcome to Week 4

Last week we looked at the New Fashion Voices, this week is all about the New Designers and the joy and humour they are bringing and the effects of the pandemic that is driving our need for fun colours and humorous collections that isn’t taking itself to seriously.

We will be looking at:

  • Fashion and the Pandemic
  • Moving forward post-pandemic
  • Humour and joy in fashion design
  • The rise of camp, kitch and ugliness
  • Up-coming trends with an industry insider
  • Fashion designer case studies embracing humour and joy

You are very near the end of the course, hope you have enjoyed it thus far.
