Textiles trip to Platt Hall

Private viewing of newly refurbished Platt Hall


The  Year 10 Textile student at Westholme were lucky enough to get a private viewing of the newly refurbished Platt Hall Costume Museum.   

The students saw clothes from early 1800 right up to the latest Alexander McQueen designs.  The girls spent their time sketching to get inspiration to enhance their GCSE couresework.  The dress made out of leather and pins particularly caught the girls’ eyes – it was a wedding dress aptly named the widow!
