Oxford Fashion Week Turns Heads
Now in its sixth year, the twice annually Oxford Fashion Week has put many new and emerging, iconic and quite simply show stopping designers on the map. And with the incredible visit from American Vogue’s Anna Wintour to the Oxford Union this year, the tempo has changed –things just got even more exciting.
One of our own independent high street boutiques, Olivia May who opened on Little Clarendon Street last October,
graced the catwalk within the Cosmopolitan Shows with ranges including new collection Rundholz Dip, an experimental range known for its beautiful use of dyes and paints.
“We chose to show ranges including Rundholz to challenge the way clothes are worn everyday. We should never grow out of playing dress up, trying new and different looks and seeing clothes as a fun way of expressing ourselves” says store owner Ann Whorrall.
The atmosphere at the shows were nothing short of lively and dynamic added Ann. The buzz surrounding March fashion week was infectious and with incredible creations and raw artistic talent brought to the forefront of fashion in the county, organisers Carl Anglim and Tiffany Saunders (also the show director), are nothing short of beaming with the success of this Spring...
“Oxford Fashion Week is an exhibition of extraordinary designs from exceptional established and emerging designers. It also creates opportunities for the creative industries across the region and for young people studying at the City of Oxford College, Oxford Brookes University and Oxford University. We are entirely focused and passionate about continuing to extend the reach of these events - the October shows will be mind blowing and we can’t thank everyone enough for their support, social buzz and involvement”.
