Having done several fundraisers so far, including selling their designs at the Clothes Show Live and opening a small Valentine’s stall in the Student Union where they sold cards and handmade creations, the students aim to raise enough money to show their work at an event that could change all of their lives.
I spoke to Florence Tudgay about catwalk, she said: “It’s exciting knowing we might be able to show our work at Graduate Fashion week because that could mean you potentially get headhunted for a job or masters degree. It’s also exciting just showing our work to others who don’t know who we are or what we’re about and getting out name out there.”
However, it’s not just Florence that is organising the small fundraisers here and there that could impact their future careers, “20-30 people are organising the fundraiser as that is our whole year group and a maximum of ten will get into Graduate Fashion Week, they get picked in a show selection in front of a panel of judges.”
If you are interested in getting tickets to the show, tickets are available for purchase on the 2nd floor of Heritage House now.
