The Royal College of Art’s MA show is always packed with spectacular, individual work. Last year was no exception so why not spend a little time this weekend marvelling at the previous graduates' handiwork before the next class get their chance to showcase their talents!? Today the V&A opens a free exhibition which showcases work by a selection of graduates from the class of 2008 from Royal College of Art. This display features highlights from the selection fashion MA graduates' final collections and will reveal aspects of the design process. The exhibition will feature highlights from the graduates’ final collections and ranges from an oversize handbag to a leopard print suit (Katie Eary). It will also reveal aspects of their design process through preliminary sketches, illustrations, models and the finished garment.

Fifty five outfits and accessories from twenty seven designers are displayed in four sections - Concept, Form, Technique and Detail. Each section will explore the design stages the students go through to create their final collection from their inspiration to the finished garment, and will include preparatory drawings, design boards and photographs. It is worth repeating that this is a free exhibition and will be run in the Fashion Room right through to January 31st 2010.
