Our Lower Sixth, A Level Fashion & Textiles students have learnt so many exciting skills this year, but one of their more important lessons is trying to work more sustainably.

The fashion industry has a bad reputation for contributing to the negative impact we have on our environment. We know we can’t solve the problem over night! But we can do our best to make positive changes.

Recently, a factory donated some denim samples to our students that would ordinarily have gone to landfill. They spent time decorating and developing the denim as part of their most recent project based on abstract colour, shape and pattern. The jersey yarns are sourced from a company who sell off end of line materials that can not be sold to industry in large quantities anymore. Our students did a great job of giving these materials a new life while learning too!

The pictures show some of the design journey, and the amazing and creative final samples.
