Congratulations to the Class of 2016


Today we watched our fabulous fourth years graduate and we’d like to wish them all the very best for the future! It’s always a bit sad to say goodbye to our students when they reach the end of the course but we look forward to seeing what exciting opportunities lie ahead. Keep in touch everyone and enjoy your celebrations! 

Happy 29th of February

Happy 29th of February everyone!

Although you’re all far too busy to contemplate the opportunity to propose today, we thought you might like to know the fashion implications of a leap year… Just in case the mood takes you, make sure you are properly attired. Women should wear breeches or a scarlet petticoat to pop the question today and our Danish friends can look forward to receiving 12 pairs of gloves if the gentleman refuses her advances, while in Finland, she will receive enough fabric for a skirt.

We hope this information has lightened your day and, if you’re working in retail, may you sell many red petticoats!

Thanks to Hannah for sharing this fabulous photo from London!

It’s been a busy week for our third years with lots of placement updates!

Lucie is on a year long placement with Cosmopolitan magazine in Prague! A few months ago, Cosmopolitan started helping Rosa charity, which helps abused women and their children overcome problems. Last week, Lucie and the fashion team went to Fashion Arena Outlet to pick out clothes for the children. This initiative has been so successful that Cosmopolitan are planning to hit the interior decor stores next to provide bed linen and pillows. We think this is a fantastic initiative and look forward to hearing more!

Happy Friday followers!

As we approach the end of January, we look forward to welcoming back our students for semester 2 – with the notable absence of our lively third years who are preparing to go out on placement next week! They’ll shortly be followed by our Masters students in April.

We’re so excited to see some of the exciting opportunities they have lined up for the next few weeks and wish them all the very best wishes for their placements! We’ll be sharing some of their photos and experiences over the next few weeks so watch this space…

Kirstin Ritchie started her placement this week – at rrrentals in New York! We’re happy to report that Kirstin’s having a great time in the big apple where she’s already gained valuable styling experience.

Kirstin’s keen to make the very most of her time in New York and is enjoying the culture, scenery and the snowy weather – spending some of her spare time at dance classes!
