Limkokwing showcases multi-cultural “Date Night” collection at London Fashion Week 2018
In an event billed as one of the most prestigious by fashion lovers worldwide, Limkokwing University displayed creative excellence with the debut of its culturally diverse Autumn/Winter 2018 Ready-To-Wear collection at London Fashion Week on 18 February 2018.
For the third year in a row, Limkokwing stood proudly the one and only university from Asia to showcase its own collection on the world stage.
Themed ‘Date Night’, this year’s show gave spectators a mix of Asian and African tradition that alluded to a romantic modern mood between long distance lovers.
The design team worked together with students to create exquisite slim silhouettes that drew inspiration from their expeditions to Botswana, Swaziland, Kenya, Iran, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, China, India and Borneo.
“This collection should represent where we come from,” said Creative Director and University Vice President of Brand, Creativity & Talent Development, Dato’ Tiffanee Marie Lim.
“Limkokwing is a very unique network. There was no way we would pass up the chance to say something about how we live and exchange ideas.”
“The designers went to these countries to search for the most inspiring traditional and cultural ideas, related to students’ lifestyle. Our collection is not a usual one, but was created with a special touch of uniqueness to express a feeling of romance and love through costume.”
She added that the success of the collection spoke of how well the team worked together and exchanged ideas.
It all started off as just an idea. Making a vision come to life, takes a lot! We are proud that our students full London Fashion Week collection was picked up by Vogue UK!
