Australian Academy of Design 2012 Grad show

Hello all and welcome back to the first blog post of the year.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday over the Christmas and New Year’s break and are looking forward to the wonderful exciting year we have ahead of us.  Sorry for the long absence but I was on holiday back in Perth visiting friends and family so in order to make up for my tardiness I’ll be uploading a few more posts then usual in the next few weeks.

Now that the little intro is over onto what this blog post is really about.  The fashions!!!

So before I left for my Perth holiday I was invited to attend AAD’s (Australian Academy of Design) Graduation show.  This show did not only comprise of just fashion but also showcased the schools other departments such as Graphic Design, Advertising, Photography and Visual Arts.  I mostly focused on the fashion showcase as I was acting as a guest photographer for my friend Anna Cabral,who was the schools Fashion Events Intern and had helped to organise the show.  I went back stage and snapped a couple of “Behind the Scenes” shots amongst the flurry of nervous students and busy make up and hair crew and soon after settled myself in the photographer’s pit for the show to begin.

Amongst the young designers were a few stand outs, one in particular which I’m quite fond of was Joseph Jang’s designs.  His textiles are just amazing and his garment designs are absolutely gorgeous and are immaculately constructed.  I’m very much looking forward to seeing more of his collections in the future to see where this young talent goes.

The night ended with much applause for all the hard working designers and after a long night of running back and forth from behind stage and to and from the photography pit it was time to call it a night since the next morning myself and Anna had a whole day of shooting with our close photographer friends Neil Creek and Elias Lopez (both pretty much my mentors when it come to photography).

I’ll be breaking up this post into 2 parts , the second one I’ll update again with the other students designs sometime this week as there was just too much to post and this would have gone on forever.  So look forward to part 2 within the next couple of days.
