Since day one, UnderPinned has been built to support the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.

As London College of Fashion‘s official End of Year Show partner, we’ll be showcasing selected LCF students’ End of Year Projects, from Womenswear, Menswear and Jewellery, for a July Takeover.

All students’ work will be presented as a beautiful Portfolio made on the UnderPinned Virtual Office.


Rory Townsend

My name’s Rory Townsend, I am a current third year graduating BA Fashion Design Menswear student studying at London College of Fashion (UAL:LCF).

My final collection is inspired by the melding of subculture and utopia; taking influences from growing up in rural Dorset, exploring the idea of isolated romanticism and feelings of isolation. Research into artistic British communities such as the Bloomsbury Group and the countryside representation in the works of Jack Thorne and Perry Ogden were also an integral part of the project.

There is a strong use of re-imagined workwear and sportswear silhouettes that create form through the collection. I intend to pursue a career in fashion in the future, furthering my experience through education and studio work beforehand.

Mert Celebi

My name’s Mert Celebi and I’m currently graduating from London College of Fashion, specialising in Menswear. Highly skilled in design development, sampling and final production process, I have gained great analytic skills and experiences working with a variety of designers in-house and LFW backstage.

In my early career, I would like to focus on zero-waste production methods and eco-conscious clothing concepts. For my final year project, I worked in collaboration with Hattie Davis from Fashion Textiles Embroidery at LCF.
