Grace Blackman, Fashion Design with Business Studies student was selected by Jess Cartner-Morley for the paper’s graduate special – Jess said, “I love the purity and the glamour in Grace’s work. Young designers sometimes shy away from making their clothes beautiful, because they want to be different. But beauty is powerful. She looks like an angel, or a superhero, or both.”
Grace’s graduation pieces are called the “ice-olation” coat and dress and are based on sculptures of garments trapped in ice, and inspired by Deborah Turbeville and Veronique Branquinho photography.

If I ever get married I would wear this dress and coat. It’s so elegant and would capture me perfectly. I can’t say how much I feel drawn to it. I was captivated when I saw it in the Guardian.
