LFW SS18 Highlights: Cassey Gan
“It feels amazing to be showcasing in London, because I studied at London College of Fashion, so it’s always been my dream to come back”, said Cassey.
Since studying in London for four years and graduating with first class honours from London College of Fashion six years ago, her graduate collection was one out of the twenty-five collections selected by LCF for its external press show. Vogue Italia later featured her in their global edition of “discovering fashion’s future generation of talents.” She was one of thirty-four graduates from the UK to be talent-spotted in this magazine.
The timeless yet modern collection fused comfort and style with an innovative mix of fabrics and non-formfitting silhouettes.
“MY EXPERIENCE WITH FASHION SCOUT HAS BEEN REALLY REALLY GOOD, RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING. REALLY PROFESSIONAL AND EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT THEY’RE DOING. I’D LOVE TO COME BACK!”
Inspired by David Hockney, Cassey says “I really wanted to drizzle all of his work, his colours, his strokes, all across the collection because I love his work.” This can be clearly seen in the collection through the brightly coloured prints.
Slicked back hair and natural makeup meant the clothes were the sole focus of the show. Multi-dimensional garments were portrayed through the use of layered fabric. What emphasised the print was the different textures and prints that created a unique and innovative aesthetic. The collection showed an array of pleated skirts, wide cropped trousers, wrap shirts, metallic skirts, oversized printed bags and full sleeved dresses. Cassey says, “I’m really happy with how it looks as a collection.”
