Fife College NC Fashion Design and Manufacture






PRESS RELEASE

Date: 31 May 2016

 

Students Fashion Bandanas for Charity

 

Colourful bandanas made by Fife College Fashion students have raised funds for Rachel House Children’s Hospice after a flash sale held in College raised £230 in just three hours!

 

The NC Fashion Design and Manufacture student group held the sale as part of their course combining the Creative Textiles and Display modules of their course with the Enterprise Activity module.

 

The students enjoyed loads of creative fun designing and making the bandanas and especially enjoyed meeting customers face-to-face for their evaluation and feedback. College staff and students flocked to the stand at the Stenton campus, Glenrothes, to pick up a bargain bandana which in turn has raised funds for Rachel House in Kinross.

 

Christine Robson, Fashion Lecturer, was delighted with the students’ work and said: “The 100% cotton bandanas were hand folded and dyed by the students using the ancient Japanese Shibori technique and were available for Spring/ Summer 2016 in French Navy, Tulip Red, Flamingo Pink and Tropical Green.

 

“I’d like thank all those who bantered, negotiated, bought and gave generously with feedback to the students all of which has helped them gain a new set of skills and experience which will help them as they move on to future study or to work. We look forward to presenting Rachel House with the funds raised over the coming weeks.”

 

Fashion courses beginning in August are recruiting now - for further details visit www.fife.ac.uk or call 01383 559028.

Fife College NC Fashion bandana project


Its time for our Fashion Student Bandana Sale on Tuesday 31 May 10am – 2pm. Meet all your festival and holiday needs in one go by visiting our pop-up shop in Stenton main corridor at Fife College.

 
The NC Fashion student group have integrated the Creative Textiles and Display modules with the Enterprise Activity module into this larger project. It’s been wild at times and lots of fun but they are especially looking forward to meeting customers face to face for their evaluation feedback. The 100% cotton bandanas have been hand folded and dyed using the ancient Japanes Shibori technique and are available this year in French Navy, Tulip Red, Flamingo Pink and Tropical Green. (See poster attached.)  There are only 50 available of these limited edition accessories. Each one is unique. I’m happy to say that the students sold out very quickly last year. So please come along to support them and spice up your wardrobe or pug at the same time. All proceeds go to Rachel House Children’s Hospice in Kinross.

Visit to Ardmel by Fife College fashion department






16 final year students of HND Fashion Design and Production with Retail visited Glenrothes based garment manufacturer, Ardmel, this week to learn about modern technologies in the workplace. The company were honoured to receive a Queens Award for innovation for the development of the ultrasonic sewing machine that joins garment seams without using a needle or thread. The students learned how to test seams for tensile strength and abrasion resistance and were also delighted to use the tape seaming equipment used in garment construction by Burberry, Pretty Green, Adidas and Le Coq Sportif.
