Six of our Fashion and Textiles students had their passion led them into the heart of the capital for three days, where they helped designers fit garments to models and recorded what each would be wearing.
They found out about many different styles and approaches in the industry, thanks to the wide range of prolific designers they worked with.
The creative forces of Louise Rose Couture, Omar Mansoor, Lenie Boya, See-Saw Menswear, Sashmita Dellawa, Forever Devine, Aga Couture London, Eva Grygo, House of Mobe and Ngwane Designs all helped expose the students to the creative fashion industry in ways only an event of this calibre can.
Fashion and Textiles lecturer, Samantha Jones talked about the value of these opportunities for students.
It helps as the students get to experience a real working environment, see how designers conduct themselves in different situations and be inspired by the designers garment collections.
They also see a wide range of tasks involved in producing a fashion event; providing them with inspiration to bring back into college for their own fashion show at the end of the year.
Student Abigail Willis described the event as a fantastic opportunity and experience at times it was very intense, but I loved every second of it.
We offer a range of courses in Art, Design and Fashion for school leavers.
For mature students who missed out on formal qualifications at college, an Access to Higher Education Diploma is available in Art, Design and Photography in order to prepare students for progression to university-level courses.
