About this event

Starts: Friday 4 December 2020 1:00 PM

Ends: Friday 4 December 2020 2:00 PM


LCF fashion graduate Emi Tanimura will join Voice on IG Live to discuss her pioneering collection, 'Survivalist: Adapting to change' and what inspired her to create such social conscience fashion.


Emi graduated Fashion Design & Development in 2020 and has since received countless awards for her pioneering collection, Survivalist: Adapting to change.  

During her placement year, Emi became estranged from my parents and had to declare herself homeless. Emi was living off government loans, sofa-surfing for a while, until she found herself a permanent home. 

Her graduate collection, entitled ‘Survivalist: Adapting to Change’, consists of transformable, outdoor-wear that can adapt in challenging, changing environments just as she needed to adapt during those difficult time.
