American InterContinental University (AIU) London hosted its exclusive 'Viral' Fashion Show on Tuesday 6th December 2011 at the One Mayfair, London.
Based on the theme of Biology, student designers were tasked with considering the evolution of clothing and fashion. As a natural science concerned with the study of life, Biology provided unlimited inspirational concepts. Students were able to apply ideas of structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution to fashion and really let their creative juices flow. The clothes on the catwalk were creative, contemporary, and fashion forward, forming a covetable array of appealing designs whilst challenging the mainstream.
The runway exhibited individual designs from first, second, and final year students. From menswear to womenswear, from pre-Collection Experimental Pieces to 3D Form design, clothing ranged from the commercial and conceptual to the avant-garde.
The Fashion Show provided key industry figures such as noted English fashion designer Zandra Rhodes, along with leading representatives from UK retail, with a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes and view designs from the next generation of international fashion talent.
All proceeds from the fashion show were in aid of The Esther Benjamins Trust, a charity that rescues Nepalese children from trafficking- including from Indian circuses where the children were forced to work as performers. The Esther Benjamins Trust offers the children the opportunity of a full education and a range of vocational training opportunities such as jewellery design.
