I loved the graduate collection of Ada Zanditon. Theatrical, Scupltural and artistic were all great words to describe but it was certainly not very wearable not for the majority of the population at least. As graduate shows are really about showing what you are made of design wise and practical considerations less of a pressing matter, I am more than happy to enjoy looking at the interesting shapes, textures and patterns that combine to create some very dramatic pieces.
Once graduation is over, most designers have to adapt their artistic tendencies to create more commercially viable collections that are fit for general public consumption. It is always really interesting to see how well they can do this. Judging by the preview of Ada Zandition's SS10 collection, which is showing at Vauxhall Fashion Scout and exhibiting at Somerset House, we have lots to look forward to in terms of gorgeously stylish and wearable clothes.
I also love that this collection is suatinable - more great guilt free shopping!
