Sophie Wade –


Another year, another round of graduates work tirelessly to show their skill and innovation to industry experts. Here is a closer look at some of the graduates that really caught our attention with regards to print.

Claire Tagg, UCA Rochester

Claire Tagg’s collection, Flight, represents the life of an air hostess. The expressive, textured surface design includes stylized illustrations and glamorous florals. See her online portfolio here –

Irene D’Antonio, Edinburgh College of Art

Winner of the Marks and Spencer’s Womenswear Award, Irene D’Antonio’s work combines Italian tailoring with japanese influences. Printed maple and ginkgo leaves dance upon a beautiful muted pallete of peach tones and pops of marigold yellow.


Lauren McArthur, UCA Rochester

When at the seaside’ is the beautiful collection by Lauren McArthur which really celebrates fun, bright surface design. With seaside scenes and twee beach huts, this collection is rich in detail and a lovely addition to the catwalk this summer.
