Footwear, Accessories, Millinery & Eyewear
Graduates from 2020 Footwear Accessories Millinery and now Eyewear demonstrate what the future looks like via building structures and forms with 3D technologies and sustainable systems and materials while re-defining what handmade /craft will be. The footwear and accessories specialisms have existed since 1996 but this year is re-defined with an “E” for Eyewear, consolidating the first MA in eyewear in the U.K. The Class of 2020 has produced some great thinkers and makers who have adapted well to the new normal. We have transformable pockets, 3D printed shoes, leather forms and flowers, optical opulence, lenticular geometric forms where the perception of reality occurs in the virtual domain.
Perfection. How will we think?

Performance. How will we walk, run, stretch?
Interaction deflection. What will we need to carry?
Pose Posture. What shape will our bodies make?
Sublime Beauty. What style will these forms take ? How do these objects make us feel?
