Featuring Fashion Design Graduate Jasmine Broughton

Jasmine Broughton has just completed her time at WSA studying Fashion Design, garnering much attention at the London Press Show and Graduate Fashion Week, as well as scooping two awards from WSA – the Fashion & Textiles Award, given at the London show, and the Nancy Balfour Award for achievement at the Degree Show last week.
Jasmine’s final collection was inspired by abstract art, the bold colour and free movement of line and texture. Collage influenced many of the silhouettes within the collection resulting in overlaid or oversized shapes representing the random abstract information found within the artists work.

Her collection also took inspiration from her Grandmother’s love of fashion whatever her age. “Age has been a big influence when designing and my aim is to create fashion that all ages can enjoy. I have focused on developing embellishment techniques that are unique to my designs and represent that fun ethos behind the idea of any woman wearing my clothing.”

Post WSA, Jasmine hopes to “continue designing clothing that allows me to develop my love of experimentation with textures and further push my textile techniques whether this be within a design company role or designing for my own label.”
