John Walford shared his years of experience with an engaged room of future fashion practitioners. His presentation guided us through over 60 individual shows, giving the audience insight into how a show comes together in a range of circumstances.
Through the use of videos and images, it clearly illustrated the eclectic taste that the show producer requires in order to meet the expectations of the designer, whilst adding his own inimitable touch. The presentation finished with a round of Q and A, where the questions were answered honestly and openly, finishing the seminar with a personal sense of insight.
