'Designs on…The Future' at Dundee Degree Show
May '09
Fashion icon Erin O'Connor, zombies straight out of the goriest 70's horror films, and some of the country's leading young artists and designers will combine to make the 2009 Degree Show at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee one of the highlights of the cultural calendar later this month.

Thousands of people are expected to attend this year's Dundee Degree Show, which takes place from Saturday May 23rd to Saturday June 6th at the Vision Building in Dundee's Greenmarket.

Before the exhibition gets underway there is an invite-only VIP event, `Designs on…The Future', where Erin O'Connor - fashion superstar, Chair of the British Fashion Council and a trustee of the Victoria & Albert Museum - will help launch this year's show.

The VIP event, which takes place on Wednesday 20th May and is sponsored by Unicorn Property Group, will feature a catwalk show of new work from graduate jewellery and textile design students.

Erin says she is eager to see the wealth of creative talent Degree Show has to offer.

“I am looking forward to meeting the students and seeing their work,” said Erin. “I know how important degree shows are to demonstrate the incredible creativity that there is, which in turn contributes to our country's economy and a richer life experience.”

Over 260 graduating students will be displaying their degree projects, across the disciplines of fine art, design, textiles, jewellery, animation and digital imaging.

Among the many highlights this year are:
• Ailsa Lawson's startling array of horror make-up, including her zombie film `Dee Of The Dead'
• Fergus Walker's human-powered flour mill
• Hayley Scanlan's high-end designer sportswear
• Jessica Ramm's recycling of an 18th century town clock mechanism
• Tom Metcalfe's personalised coffee grinder, roaster and brewer
