Molly Goddard is Central Saint Martins 2012 graduate in Knitwear, who got accepted onto the MA course by Louise Wilson. Moly, congratulations! Inspired by her baby clothes, she has presented a bright, girly, big and exciting graduate collection of oversized crinoline dresses from neon tulle and delicate crochet, her fabric manipulations were fantastic. We wish her good luck with her MA course and would like to thank her for a great interview.
‘Township Resolution” is a collaboration with photographer Dexter Lander (2nd Year Fashion Communication and Promotion) and Stylist and Image maker Gracie Wales Bonner (2nd Year Fashion design with Marketing). Gracie cites the work of Pieter Hugo, Viviane Sassen and Thabiso Sekalga as key references for the shoot, which was an attempt to recreate a ‘virtual township’ around Ridley Road market. Informed by a recent trip to Ghana, Gracie was inspired by the slow loading speed of the internet, and the distortions that appeared on her screen, something that is developed in these photographs.

Jim Hu is a 1st year Womenswear student and for his Turning Point Project he has created a stunning sculptural piece out of a thin red thread. He promised us a full garment soon, but for now, here is his beautiful work and Jim’s inspiration in his own words and illustrations.
“Our world is composed by fundamental particles, regard them as balls on a pool table, then the motion in between would be understandable and predictable, because it always follows the rule: ”the incident angle equals the reflect angle”.
However, in our real world there’s too many of them, the whole mechanism is too big to observe. So, we rarely notice that there is always a mathematical explanation behind, even how random, uncertain, or wired it appears to be.
Randomness, uncertainty or wiredness never really exists; even our thoughts are composed by electrons; therefore, maybe freewill doesn’t really exist either.
I then found red thread as a suitable material to represent this idea, in my cultural background, people believe there’s an invisible red thread that connects you and your destined one. Visually, red is a colour of being energetic and vital, and thread could be the string of fate, a fundamental element of a garment, or motion in between particles… etc.
Anyway, 3D weaving is my current research outcome of this idea, hope I will be able to make garments with this technique soon.”
