The countdown is on to our annual charity fashion exhibition: a celebration of creativity and culture! Our first years are working hard on their creative ideas…
Last week, the students presented their ideas as part of a formal business pitch and we really enjoyed seeing some of their initial ideas brought to life in the form of mood boards, posters and videos – well done everyone!
Student groups were each assigned a charity (Cancer Research, Chest Heart and Stroke, CLAN, Oxfam, Stella’ Voice, PDSA, Save the Children, Shelter, Sue Ryder Care and Barnardo’s) and given £10 to spend on a garment from the charity’s local branch; they were then asked to choose a cultural artefact and this – combined with the garment and their charity’s mission – would form the basis of their creative showcase!
We’re looking forward to sharing some of these ideas over the next few weeks in the run up to the exhibition’s launch on the 12th of April! We’ve seen a real variety of themes so far, from cult classic TV shows to Hollywood blockbusters and novels! Can you guess (from the garments above) what some of these themes might be…?
