Eden Loweth and Tom Barrett the creators of the London Fashion Label Art School come back to visit New College Stamford to talk to our current Creative Arts Students!
Eden and Tom in recent months have shot to fame as the creators of their unique fashion label ‘Art School’. The brand has recently received critical acclaim after being nominated for a British Fashion Award in the category for “British Emerging Talent Menswear”. As well as this, they also had the great privilege of opening London Fashion Week with their Menswear collection which was held at the famous ‘Truman Brewery”.
As part of their visit to New College Stamford, our current Creative Arts students gathered in the theatre to hear from Eden and Tom and listen to their journey on how they have become so successful after leaving College. After the talk, the floor was then opened up to a Q&A session where students could ask any questions that they had. This was a great experience for our students because they can hear from a current industry professional who lives and breathes this every day. Any advice that they could pick up from Eden and Tom will undoubtedly help them in their own journeys. Giving our students the opportunity to meet and hear from guest speakers is so important because they get to see people who where in their shoes not that long ago, and see how they can make it right to the top with hard work and dedication to their craft.
After the talk and Q&A session, the students then got the opportunity to participate in a workshop where they got to create their own Art School T – shirts. Eden and Tom brought in a t-shirt for every Fashion student which they then got the chance to customise themselves with scissors and spray paint. The students absolutely loved seeing how Tom and Eden work and were thrilled with the outcome of the designs.
We are all so proud of Eden for what he has achieved so far and it is almost guaranteed that he will go on for many more years and grow his label and business even bigger. We thank him for coming back and passing on some extremely valuable information to our current students and this has definitely helped them to succeed in their courses. Fingers crossed Eden and Tom can come back and visit again when their busy schedules allow it and who knows where they will be then!
