Style on Campus #9

Another year, another series of Style on Campus - welcome back to the staple fashion blog at King's College London and the best feature of them all. It's been 3 years since we made a habit out of walking around campus and spotting you, fashionable people of King's, awkwardly asking you to pose for us and then, even more awkwardly, asking you to provide us with some meaning for your particular outfit choice on that particular day. But despite the social hurdles in obtaining these snapshots of KCL's fashion evolution, we know you all love the result. So brace yourselves for the first Style on Campus of the year!

LFW: Ashish AW17

By Erina Nadzira 

From white bandanas to Planned Parenthood badges to David Bowie’s “This Is Not America”, NYFW saw designers using their catwalk as a way to express their opinion on current events. Dehli-born Ashish Gupta carried the trend on into LFW in his signature spangly twist when presented his about AW17 collection. His collection last season was self-described as “celebration of Indian culture in this country”, an expression of his heartbreak surrounding Brexit. This season Ashish is back to take on Trump, this time, with more gusto (and definitely more glitter) and the results were nothing short of uplifting.

With an echoing choral rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, the show opens with one model walking down the sparkling gold –Follow the yellow brick road!– runway in a sequined rainbow mini dress paired with a matching jacket (and matching mules). Rainbow hues are a recurring theme in Ashish’s AW17 show – from jumpsuits to jumpers to co-ords, near every piece is vibrant and bedazzled.

Hair by Sam McKnight - our visual reflection

It probably goes without saying that Sam McKnight counts as the hair and session stylist transforming supermodels such as Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington,  Naomi Campbell or Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner over forty years in order to create some of the most iconic images in popular culture. Close to Princess Diana, Vivienne Westwood, Lady Gaga, David Bowie and Tilda Swinton, the beautifully curated exhibition at Somerset House invited us to join and observe McKnight's creative, daring genius. Entering the rooms without expectations, we were left with a swirling infusion of nostalgia and androgyny, romance, courage, avant-garde, splendor and the irrevocable desire to book a hair cut soon. 
We honestly could not have enjoyed it any more - which is why we thought we should provide a few snapshots for those who missed it: 

Much love,
Federica and
 the KCL FashionSoc Team

A non-conventional women: Vivienne Westwood’s world

by Maurane Vuillaume 

Provocative, innovative, frank, unique and anti-conformist are all adjectives that describe Vivienne Westwood herself, as much as her collections. Vivienne Westwood is a fashion designer known for her engagement, passion and craziness who has, over the years, become an institution in the fashion industry.
At the origin of the punk movement, she is not one to be a hypocrite; what she thinks, she says.
It all started back in 1971 when she and her husband, Malcolm McLaren, opened a boutique in King’s Road, London that has had several names, from “Paradise Garage” to “SEX”. As the names clearly suggest, the outfits are sexual as she believes that fashion is about sex. The boutique and, most importantly, Vivienne’s style attracted a lot of people and were a reference for punks.
                However, she has left the punk movement in the past and has changed direction, whilst still being anti-conformist. Her next collections are inspired by the 18th century, as she is passionate about the history of costume and from world-wide cultures.  
Despite being anti-conformist and sometimes even shocking, as when she reintroduced the crinoline, she is always widely supported.
However, being an institution did not change her style in any way- she still is the same frank and direct designer who does not care about what people think; she uses tweed, tartan and other emblematic fabrics and styles but always with the derision, she has become iconic for.
Now aged 74 she does not have less of a wild style nor mind. Having seen her at a conference she recently gave at King’s College London for the EcoSoc, she is truly inspiring and passionate. The iconic rebel is now concerned with our environment and is dedicated to changing people’s minds and convincing them that it is time to do something about our degenerating planet. Straight-forward and with no censure, as we know her, she has a website (, where she denounces what she calls our “rotten financial system”, which she holds responsible for the deterioration of our environment.

But if her commitment to the environment changed the way she perceives fashion, it did not push her away from the fashion industry. Instead, she has decided not to use any fur in her design and even admitted that she has never used real fur. She once said: “buy well, choose well, make it last”. Vivienne Westwood just released her 2017 ready to wear collection, always with the same passion and dedication that characterizes her.
