On Monday 5 December we travelled to Birmingham to visit The Clothes Show Live. Everyone enjoyed the event and had an opportunity to meet lecturers and students from many universities offering Fashion BA (Hons) and textile courses. There was also a wide range of final products and portfolios to view exemplifying the type of work produced at that level. The day ended with a fabulous fashion show which has hopefully given our students some inspiration for the Sidcot Fashion Show 2017!
I have been attending this event with students for many years and it is a shame that it is moving to Liverpool in 2017 after 27 years at The NEC, as it has become a Sidcot textile tradition.
