Graduates 2018: Sandrine Melville: Fashion

My studies have always led me towards sustainable design which culminated with my dissertation investigating the viability of cradle to cradle as a solution within the fashion industry.

My final collection EMBODIMENT, originated from my dissertation research, encompassing elements of mortality and spirituality. Inspiration comes from a seventies aesthetic, referencing sci fi films and focusing on what it meant to be fashion forward during this time.

My graduate womens wear collection focuses on bespoke pieces, drawing inpiration from all aspects of art and design, for example my starting reference point was a piece by William Warren, “Shelves for life”. Oak book shelves which can be dismantled to create ones own coffin, the ultimate in durable sustainable design.
