HNC and HND: Sarah and Louise prepare
HND: Miranda flutters
NC, HNC, HND and friends listening for cue.
By this point, the Atrium catwalk has been arranged around Furniture and Graphic displays, the backdrops whitewashed by the Curriculum Heads, Christine and Hazel, the stage painted black by Steve our technician. Not to mention Susie and Anita encouraging the students to complete and press the garments. Running orders and scripts have been devised and communicated. The technical rehearsal for lights, music and student compere levels have all taken place with Fraser our events technician.
On our courses, students learn skills to help prepare them for all of the above. Fashion is a practical and hands on industry but preparation and planning are everything! The inspiration, design, manufacture and promotion of fashion collections is a lot of work and the finale is having a presented piece of work.
