Vivienne Westwood has created what have to be the coolest caps and gowns ever for King's College, London. The line, which will premiere in a catwalk show in the campus's Great Hall, contains twenty different robes, including fuschia (Dental Institute) and silver (Law School.) Says the colorfully-coiffed designer, "Through my reworking of the traditional robe I tried to link the past, the present and the future. We are what we know."[Daily Star]
Damn, if only she designed my law school graduation robe... it was hideous and huge, and A RENTAL. Extra gross! And we went through the bizarre "hooding" ritual which for all the world sounded to me like a sex act.
A funky silver grad gown would have definitely spiced up the ceremony, especially since hooding didn't turn out to involve sex after all. Darn.
