In addition to a fashion catwalk extravaganza, several hundred guests admired achievements in design, marketing, interior design and communication design.
Student prize winners
The evening also saw the presentation of three student prizes:
Christine Smith Egeland was the winner of the Regent’s Bloomsbury Fashion Award 2016. She received fashion books from Bloomsbury Publishing in recognition of her ‘Unique Mind’ collection.
Christine noted: 'My fashion designs portray a visual representation of the human psyche and emotional aspects of anxiety, representing the idea of restrictions that are forced upon us.'
Kristina Loskarjova from the Britannica International School in Budapest competed against students from 13 countries to win the inaugural Regent’s International Fashion Schools’ Competition for her architecture-inspired blue and black dress design.
She said: 'I’m amazed to have won this competition and want to thank Regent’s University London for giving me the opportunity to work on this exciting project.'
Anna Yumasheva, Interior Design student, won the prestigious Little Greene Award for her design for an ‘Urban Piano School.’
After receiving the 'Little Greene Award’ plaque and the opportunity to display her winning project in the Little Greene London Showroom in Marylebone, Anna commented:
'I studied piano for more than seven years at school and always wanted to develop a design based on music. My concept is for a music school with practise rooms and a concert hall to bring underprivileged and wealthier children together. I’m very happy to win the Little Greene Award.'
Gill Stark, Head of Regent’s School of Fashion and Design, praised all of the graduating students saying:
'Congratulations to all of our fashion and design students, many of whom came to us with no background in art and design. We are incredibly proud of their achievements and this excellent showcase of their work.'
The Regent’s Fashion and Design shows are now open to the public at the University’s Marylebone Campus until 3 June 2016.
