Star Potential is a collaboration between image-maker and lecturer, Dean Davies and students of UWE, Bristol’s BA(Hons) Fashion Communication programme.

Captured over a 3-year period, the project explores how co-creation can enrich teaching and learning, providing students with opportunity and experience in working alongside an industry-positioned practitioner in the development of their practice.

Creating fashion image with Davies as photographer and film-maker and students as stylists and casting directors, each of the project’s 19 photo-shoots were built from the ground-up. Mirroring industry practice, students were invited to pitch their ideas and attended a series of tutorials with Davies to develop their styling and casting further, culminating in a styling fitting and final amendments prior to the photo-shoots.

The visuals of Star Potential see models captured against residential backdrops in Bristol, juxtaposing fashion with familiar public settings. Each student’s unique perspective on fashion takes centre stage through the styling and casting depicted - an extension of work they develop throughout their time on the programme, exploring topics such as; queerness, gender nonconformity and kitsch, and including contemporary and nostalgic references to style trends; from punks and cowboys to early 2000s pop stars.

The curated outfits include garments from grandparent’s wardrobes, upcycled items sourced from charity shops, and styling assembled on the day for the purpose of the photo-shoot.

Family members, friends and street-cast models feature throughout.
