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.”
We’re sure Jasmine will go on to great successes! Make sure you see her work at the Degree Show, on for the rest of this week.
Currently in her second year of Fashion Design at WSA, Jasmine Broughton introduces us to her work from the last semester.
I used strong and structured shapes along with fluid lines to inspire my designs. 1960’s Mods were an inspiration for the feel I wanted my collection and garment to have, taking certain aspects such as trouser length and some of the structured garment shapes in order to give the sense of the Mod style.
This collection is inspired by explosions of matter and the texture, structure and movement within them. My aim was to develop a collection that was heavily textured and colour based, capturing dense tactile surfaces and movement throughout my designs.
