Today our first year Fashion Management, Events Management and Public Relations students launched their Fashion Exhibition: a Celebration of Creativity and Culture. There were so many highlights that we don’t quite know where to begin…
We’re looking forward to sharing more photos of the full exhibition spaces soon but here’s a sneak peak at some of the charity shop garments and from today’s launch event!
The stands looked great and were all really different and exciting in their own way! From balloon animals to tarot card readings, there were lots of interesting ideas for audience engagement.
There was even some handmade bunting which will be donated to Sue Ryder Care after the exhibition!
Tomorrow our students have their exhibition debrief where we’ll discuss our successes and identify areas for improvement.
Overall, we’d like to congratulate our students on a wonderfully styled and creative event! Although we don’t yet have a final total, we’re delighted to have raised over £200 between the charities represented.
As promised, we are pleased to reveal the first of our themes from this year’s fashion exhibition, Breakfast at Barnardo’s!
Our students would like to invite you to visit their creative showcase inspired by the Barnardo’s mission and the Audrey Hepburn classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Want to find out more? Come along to the launch event between 12 and 2 on Wednesday the 12th of April…
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…?
