Sadie Clayton (LCCA’s course manager for BA Fashion Design) presented her A/W 2018 collection at AltaRoma, Rome’s biannual fashion week.

The event focused on celebrating diversity through innovative fashion and design, featuring 16 models of different sizes and ethnic backgrounds. Sadie, who is known for incorporating copper into her dresses, was honoured to be invited.

“I’m a fusion of races and places, so for me this event was a perfect fit,” she said. “Being of mixed race, I grew up feeling very different, but I decided to embrace that diversity and incorporate it in my creation.”

The show was promoted by the British Ambassador to Italy Jill Morris, and took place at her ambassador’s residence as part of the Fashion Is Great campaign.

Congratulations to Sadie!
