Edward Cuming Graduate Collection – by Sophie Joy Wright

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

Eddie Cuming graduated from IED in Barcelona a few weeks ago, and this is his BA Collection. Colour me in. is light-hearted, set in a sugar sweet palette of soft bonded cotton, with moments of mixed-material collage. His accompanying film is also great fun. Though this collection stretches beyond its saccharine veneer, as the initial inspiration of Eddie’s work came from uniforms at correctional facilities, and ascetic 70s architecture. This mix is exactly where my intrigue lies, and I'm not alone here. Colour me in. just won the Best Collection award at the ModaFad show – for which ASVOF’s own Philippe Pourhashemi was on the jury.
