The best collections from Pratt Institute’s 2018 graduate fashion show

This year’s graduates from the Pratt Institute department of fashion presented collections that included a structured wicker skirt and oversized soft rabbits in New York last week.

Pratt’s annual catwalk show took place 3 May 2018 at Spring Studios in Tribeca, when 20 students selected from the graduating class sent their designs down the runway, as part of the institute’s series of end-of-year exhibitions.

The theme of this year’s presentation was Diversiform, and many collections included a mix of mens, womens and gender-neutral ensembles. The designs were worn by a refreshingly, racially diverse selection of models – a topic that the fashion industry in general is finally aiming to address.

Here are our favourite designers and looks from the show:

Qian Yu

Qian Yu’s collection was accessorised by soft-toy rabbits – from a small handheld version to a giant furry bunny carried over a model’s shoulder. One of the models was even dressed like a rabbit, wearing a pale pink headpiece complete with floppy ears, as part of a range of garments that contrasted light and dark colours, and materials of varying opacities and sheens.
