RCA Work in Progress exhibition

Sunday, January 17, 2010

I've been to see the Royal College of Art's Work in Progress exhibition, which shows student work in photography, metalwork, silver, jewellery and fashion.

I loved the exhibition last year, so was very much looking forward to it. This year's exhibition seemed to be smaller, but included many interesting sketches, images and ideas taking shape.

It was really cool to see fashion prototypes which in years to come would become wearable, high street items but for now are exciting concepts.

Three of my favourites were:

Lee Simmon's semi-circular wood-cuts

Catherine Aitken's organically patterned textile designs

Agata Madejska's sparse, sleek architectural photography

The exhibition continues until 22 January.
