The graduates of the London College of Fashion exhibited their work last week. Here's some of the footwear designs:
Inspired by a trip to New York and the architecture there, particularly from the Gothic and Art Deco periods. She wanted to create designs with modern clean lines that looked stylish, exciting and unique.
Catherine combines traditional Irish crafts such as goldwork embroidery and metalwork with modern silhouettes to create dramatic statement pieces. There is strong influences from the Baroque era, which contrast with minimalist design details.
The collection is inspired by Art Deco and Cubism and focuses on shapes which then allow the design to look more architectural and contemporary
Titled 'Tidying up the Commotion' the collection is a series of neatly organised objects in various visual manifestos, with the main inspiration from the works of Ursus Werhli, author of 'Tidying up Art' yearning for a cleaner and more organized form of modern art.

Titled Prism, the design influences have been inspired from minimal forms, urban street style and the sculptural works of Danish artist Olafur Eliasson.
The Lykke boot is a combination of irredescent leather and painted spray effects to reflect an oil slick surface and hints of colour seen from prisms.
The Freyja is a high wedge boot using neutral Scandinavian colours and light wood for inspiration. the wedge is sculpted and shaped to add quirky geometric features.
Inspiration from Robert Falcon Scott and polar exploration equipment dating from his final expedition to this very day
