Designer showcase

ramil makinano

The structure, outline and texture of Central Saint Martins', Fashion Print graduate Ramil Makinano's collection was influenced by medieval armour. The Fillipino-British designer used bright, neon, lighting as the reference for the colour palette, in contrast to the very dark colour of the medieval armour. The modern medieval armour theme can be seen in the collection's space suits and space crafts and colourful print design. The strong and powerful silhouttes of the garments and the close-fit style give the
