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.
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.
It was lovely to welcome back last years final HND Fashion students to graduation this week. This photo shows some of them celebrating their success with staff. They have now progressed to self employment, Glasgow Caledonian University, Heriot Watt University, Robert Gordon University and Gray's School of Art. Congratulations to all!
