Aimee Green – GFW 2014

 

Amiee Green, 23, from Liverpool, is an upcoming fashion design student from the University of Central Lancashire debuting her collection ‘Dressing Down Dior’ at this years Graduate Fashion Week, held in its new location of East London’s Truman Brewery.

The collection was developed through experimentation with silhouettes and influences from fashion in history. Aimee’s inspiration was everyday casual street style mixed with design aesthetics from Dior’s signature look. The collection also features a strong colour palette and range of prints, all influenced by the American abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko. Amiee is also using the Gola  Clasic’s, Women’s Spirit Jewel trainers to add the finishing touch to her look, with their classic sport shoe silhouette yet the added opulence of  small gems glittering with any movement.

With many previous students achieving promising careers in fashion after showcasing their collections at the event and the pressure to live up to UCLan’s huge success in 2012, with the fashion design students winning four awards and being shortlisted for seven, Aimee is feeling positive about the experience and feels it is a helpful steppingstone into the fashion industry.

Amiee’s collection ‘Dressed Down Dior’ was recently exhibited at Graduate Fashion Week.

About Samantha Mcnally

Samantha McNally, 20 Currently living in Sheffield, I have recently finished three years at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston studying Fashion Entrepreneurship. During this time I have gained valuable experience in a range of areas from trend forecasting to never leaving the house without an umbrella when your that far up north! Being a huge fan of music, art and fashion, I love going to gigs and events across the country with friends donning my usual stand out vintage printed shirt. Also I am an avid user of social media even if it is just to have a little nosey at what people are doing. I have spent the last 5 years working in retail alongside my education, within large soul crushing clothing retailers to much more interesting small vintage and wedding boutiques. I learnt very quickly that the phrase ‘there are no stupid questions’ is a lie, as anyone in retail will know that there are endless stupid questions asked on a daily basis. Last summer was also spent Interning at a London PR agency, learning all the ins and outs of the business whilst also having an incredible time working with stylists and having some fan girl moments of my own when celebrities visited the showroom. All in all I am outgoing and always looking for something new to experience with a wicked sense of humor and a taste for sarcasm ( much to my mothers despair).
