On Tuesday 4th June pupils who study Art and Design at GCSE were given the opportunity to visit Graduate Fashion Week held at The Old Truman Brewery in London. All pupils were free to explore the exhibitions (displaying university stands and student’s portfolios and final products), participate in the workshops/talks that took place, as well as attending two catwalk shows. Norwich University of the Arts and The University of Northampton both put on fantastic shows, which were incredibly valuable to our pupils. With collections stimulated by topical subjects such as; sustainability, the rise of social media and body image it was an invaluable experience to them all. Pupils found the day insightful, exhilarating and valuable towards references for their own personal projects. The pupils were a credit to the school and despite a long day remained positive and polite throughout.
