The final practical workshop of Fashion Futures 2019 was intense as the students went all out to complete their toiles.
With a constant hum of sewing machines in the background, they pleated, tucked, hemmed, unpicked and re-seamed, as they persevered in getting their garments complete.
The volunteers were on hand for technical and moral support, guiding the students through the process and helping them to finish.
We asked some of the students about how their designs have evolved, and what they’ve learned from the course.
Next week the students will present their work to the industry panel, in the hope of winning a place on the Fashion Futures Summer School.
Thank you to all our volunteers and to our sponsors, ASOS and NatWest.
