Week B

On Tuesday 8th December 2015, the A level Textile students went to the Clothes Show Live at the NEC Birmingham. It was a fantastic opportunity for the students to fully immerse themselves in the world of fashion and textiles.

The amount to see and do was quite overwhelming.

One of the many highlights of the day was the ALCATEL ONETOUCH fashion show which is show cased in the main fashion theatre. The students witnessed cutting edge fashion at its best, the runway was full of innovative and extreme fashion wear which was truly inspiring.

Throughout the day students got the chance to speak to University Fashion and Textiles lecturers and look through example sketchbooks and portfolios, alongside watching a Gradate Fashion Show on the Image Stage. They also had the fantastic opportunity to work with professional textile designers working with the famous LIBERTY print fabrics to make a flower brooch.

Overall the day offered a real insight into the world of Fashion and Textiles and allowed the students to see the possible future pathways within this exciting and creative field.
