Royal College of Art Fashion Preview 2009

For the second time, Dazed showcases this year's crop of RCA fashion graduates with an exclusive look at their sketchbooks and photos.

It's that time in the season again when the new talent spotlight shines on the Royal College of Art. The MA graduate show is one of the most exciting places to discover the new fashion stars of the future.  Weeks before the MA show in June, as students are scurrying around finishing or starting their collections depending on how many elves they have at their disposal, we at Dazed exclusively get a sneak preview of some of the newest and freshest menswear and womenswear talent that will be unleashed this year. We also asked the students to describe their collections in their own words.

Royal College of Art Fashion Show 2009 is on June 10, at 4pm and 7pm. Tickets can be purchased here.

Johanne Andersen

"Living in a magpie’s nest. Speckled eggs and feathers, the magpie’s black eye, collecting strange things and shiny stuff. Fake jewellery, bolts, watches, a silver spoon, metal pieces, an old worn denim jacket, keys and candy sticks develop into prints, shapes and heavy beading. The collection takes inspiration from the universe inside and around a magpie’s nest."

"I am inspired by Brancusi’s sensual sculptures, which project the sassy, illusive woman. I have developed all the possibilities I love about knitwear, sculpted volume, dense surface textures and the mixing of matt and shine qualities."
