Just want to say a HUGE congratulations to all my fellow Heriot-Watt University graduates who completed their degrees this week. It has been a long time coming and I think this year, Heriot-Watt has produced some of the finest, new designers Scotland has to offer. With a selection of our Gala Gals being short listed for Scottish Fashion Awards' Graduate of the year and many of us already receiving job offers - we are a force to be reckoned with!
If I had to choose one to watch - my pick would be Miss Coryn Dickson. I have known and loved Coryn since we met as sprightly young 18-year-olds when we moved into our questionable rooms at halls. I have watched Coryn grow and develop over the past 4 years into a talented, dedicated designer. After a handful of various internships including a summer at Alexander McQueen. Coryn has developed her own unique style of designing contemporary menswear with a twist of minimalist detailing that is both beautiful and masculine at the same time. Check out the promotional film of her collection - I am pushing 100 views fo' sho! (I swear it has nothing to do with the desirable man candy looking bad ass...)
RIP to Tarquin - The car you see being bashed in was our group of pals' favourite old banger that some how managed to pass its MOT every year and provide us with many fun trips to and from the Borders. It seems somewhat poignant that he would finally give up the ghost in our final year and serve his final purpose as a prop in this video. Forever immortalised.
Best of Luck to all you splendid graduates!
Lets hope it's one of us that scores the covetable Fashion Graduate of the year at the SFAs - buy your tickets for the Glasgow event here!
