ECU Fashion & Textile Design Grad Show – Jiva Stemmata


I was lucky enough to hang backstage at the ECU Fashion & Textile Design Graduation show and as always with these events, I am continuously on the hunt for the diamond in the rough amongst the student designers. A harsh saying you may think but true none the less and this year at ECU’s Jiva Stemmata show there were certainly a few diamonds to be found. The stand out though, shining brighter than bright was Teagan Jacobs! Her dance inspired collection was a true hit and made me nostalgic for all the costumes I wore as a child doing ballet. Usually the word ‘costume’ in fashion is an insult but not in this case. Jacobs makes me want to dance along the streets in her very wearable collection. The images she presented to compliment the collection were also incredibly beautiful and capture the essence of what she stands for – I don’t even feel the need to explain what ‘that’ is, I feel the pictures capture all that needs to be said. Look below, it is plain to see we have some serious emerging talent in this town. Well done!
