27 year old Stevie Hunter is from Glasgow. The Womenswear student completed his work placement at Chopova Lowena and Louis Vuitton in Paris. His graduate collection is inspired by the high school memories many of us share. ‘I followed the research by looking at the German artist Joseph Beuys and really explored his Free International University as a way of challenging the current education system,’ Hunter says and refers back to his experiences in the high school which he, his mother, sister and grandmother all attended. The six-look collection is made up of characters – the memory (student), deputy headmaster, the science teacher, the art teacher, headmaster, the P.E. teacher and untitled. Trousers embellished with broom bristles portray hairy legs of the deputy headmaster beside a velvet top echoing a graduation robe. The collection is nostalgic, and embodies personality.
