On Saturday 24th February 2018, we took some of our students to London Fashion Week Festival. What a day we had. These four students have each independently shown incredible interest, hard work and talent for sewing, textiles or fashion and are the influencers for SketchBetter starting sewing and textiles classes... it was their idea.
At the festival, the four girls met designers and makers from the fashion and textiles industry, they learnt about career paths and making processes, tried on their favourite items and watched a catwalk show all about trends. Here are a few photos from the day.
It was particularly wonderful for these students to see a catwalk show.
"We are over the moon about the day yesterday - it was such a special day
in every respect. I have never been to anything like London Fashion Week Festival
myself and thought everyone was so warm, approachable and interesting."
After the trip I asked the girls what they thought about the day.
