Styling the Future
Dennys and the London College of Fashion collaboration
Dennys Brands has collaborated with Graduate Diploma Fashion Media Styling students from the London College of Fashion on an exciting project. The students, who are set to be future innovators in the fashion industry, were challenged to unleash their imaginations and totally transform a simple apron into something with the "wow" factor using two mediums, photography and film. The results were showcased on 30 June 2015 at a Private Preview held at the Anise Gallery 13A Shad Thomas, London SE1.
Dennys Brands Managing Director Nick Jubert said that the results have been incredible “We have been very impressed with the professionalism of the students. Many of the concepts are unique, exciting and challenge the way we have photographed our apron ranges in the past.”
