Rankin photoshoots Kingston University's Fashion Week
May '14
A Kingston University student’s Graduate Fashion Week collection inspired by the expeditions of an early Antarctic explorer has caught the eye of a firm headed by one of the world’s leading lensmen.
British photographer Rankin sent his top assistant Trisha Ward to capture a pink sheepskin coat created by Lauren Lake as part of a special preview shoot for the eagerly-anticipated showcase which bursts on to the capital’s fashion scene this weekend. 
“To have such a talented photographer who works alongside someone of Rankin’s stature take images of one of my statement pieces was incredibly exciting,” Lauren, who is in the final year of a BA(Hons) Fashion at Kingston, said. “I felt a huge surge of pride when I saw the final result. The photo depicted the bold, daring qualities of my collection absolutely brilliantly.”
Inspired by her own wintertime exploits on the ski slopes, the 22 year old completed the six looks in her latest collection after researching the life and times of early 20th Century explorer Robert Falcon Scott and his team on their trips to Antarctica. In a nod to the hardships they endured, the garments rely heavily on the leather and sheepskin fabrics and layering usually more the domain of intrepid individuals trekking across bleak polar landscapes. 
As well as the reversible pink sheepskin coat now creating a stir in fashion circles, Lauren’s pioneering collection boasts an ice white leather jacket and a wintry metallic top complete with built-in oversized mittens. “There are no shapes or fittings in this collection – it’s all oversized and extravagant. I also picked pink as a dominant colour because I wanted my work to really stand out from the crowd,” she said.
