Last week four Fashion Design students were given the opportunity to attend the British Fashion Awards at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The awards celebrate the best of British and international talent from the global fashion community.
As part of WSA’s ongoing affiliation with the British Fashion Council, Programme Leader Cecilia Langemar and Senior Teaching Fellow Sophia Malig were invited to attend the awards. The students selected were Rose Appleton, Hannah Price, Sophie Lightowlers and Curtis Wu.
Last week WSA Fashion and Textiles staff took a group to students to New York for a study trip of studio visits, fabric and trimming shopping and museums. And an unexpected snow storm! Here are some highlights…
Head of Womenswear at Marc Jacobs shows students round the New York studio seeing the process from research to designing and making to show room. Students were lucky enough to see the current collection in progress for the upcoming runway show at New York fashion week.
Fabric and trimming shopping in the Garment District. Such amazing array of colours and unusual fabrics.
Picasso Sculptures at the MoMa.
African Kente fabric at the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum.

“I’m delighted that the Fashion & Textile Design Programme at Winchester School of Art has yet again been invited as a member of the British Fashion Council Colleges Council, due to the impressive level of work our students produce.
The membership gives our students the opportunity to participate in exclusive BFC led Fashion Industry Competitions and Career Opportunities.”
