Another year, another fantastic Fashion Show by our talented fashion students!
Each year, the Fashion Show never fails to impress with one-of-a-kind garments, each designed and created by talented Fashion students who have worked tirelessly throughout the year to achieve the level of skill and attention put into each and every design.
First on the catwalk was an array of printed dresses and printed shirts featuring a range of designs hand printed by the students.
The students’ ‘White Project’ was designed to encourage experimentation and ‘thinking outside of the box’ particularly with sculptural and 3D elements. The project produced some stunning designs with a mixture of techniques and experimentation that wowed the audience.
The show also touched on some political issues and raised awareness of sustainability and the impact of the fashion industry on the environment. Students were set a live brief to design and create a look with the budget of just £5, recycling and upcycling existing materials.
Lecturer and host of the evening, Adam Fox said,
“It’s been a fantastic evening at the Fashion Show, some amazing garments have come down the catwalk and it’s so exciting to see what our students have produced. Every year they never fail to amaze us with how creative they are, I just think it’s the most exciting thing to see the level of originality and experimentation on display tonight.”
The show was a huge cross collaboration of students’ talents and wouldn’t have been such a success without the help of photography students who captured the night from start to finish and HND Music students from University Centre Stamford who managed the sound and stage lighting.
Fashion student, India Caprio said,
“We wouldn’t have been able to put on the show without the help of our lecturers, allowing us to use the Borderville facility and giving us the connections to Music and Photography students to produce amazing photography and music for the show”
