AS-level Fashion & Textiles Show

AS-level Fashion & Textiles Show

01/04/2014

Art and Design and Gallery 12 would like to invite you to see the AS-level Fashion & Textiles show in Gallery 12.  The show creates an arena for our talented students to show their work in a gallery environment.

The students have demonstrated flare and creativity to make these wearable garments. They have used their working knowledge of fabric, an understanding of sculptural forms, and a wide variety of skills including shibori, steamed fabrics, trapped shapes in stretchy fabric, embossed leather and origami techniques to create the garments.

Some of the work on display was shown in the recent catwalk fashion show at the Athena in Leicester.  We hope you can join us and see the show.

Exhibition:  Wednesday 2nd – Thursday 10th April

Open to students and public weekdays:  9.00am – 4.00pm
