At Barton Peveril, A Level Textile students are encouraged to explore and experiment, research and respect traditional techniques and discover innovative, unorthodox ways of working.
This year’s Fashion Show saw more than 90 students take to the catwalk in a stunning display of talent titled ‘Luminosity’.
AS Level creations were inspired by the colour and luminosity of flowers, coloured glass and lights. Students showcased an innovative collection of colourful and dynamic pieces using techniques such as polyfusion, heat transfer dyeing, machine and hand embroidery.
Second years developed their own creative ensembles based on individual themes and concepts, further exploring knitting, quilting, metal manipulation and machine embroidery.
Alyna Wadsworth (Sholing) presented her ‘Noir’ collection created for an Extended Project in Fashion and Styling and the show also featured work by Foundation Art Diploma students following the Textile pathway.
Course leader, Lorna Miller, commented: “It is always incredibly exciting for students to be given the opportunity to engage in the whole process of design, construction, styling and modelling.
“The show gives the students just a taste of the speed, energy, and innovation required to work in the creative fashion industry. Over the years it has certainly been a platform for many of our previous students to begin their creative careers.”
