The Textiles department Fashion Show
GCSE and A-level Textiles students took to the stage in the Croston Theatre as they participated in the annual Textiles department Fashion Show. The students presented their designs to a proud audience of parents, staff and students.
This year, students took inspiration from a number of styles including futuristic fashion and vintage vibes. 2016 also saw Westholme’s first animal wear piece be previewed; a cat coat to protect the animal from hazards of the night. With new additions to the technology department, A-level students were also able to incorporate laser cutting technology in to their pieces for the first time.
Pre-show, the Textiles department was a hive of activity as students helped each other get into their outfits. The designs were either modelled by the students who created them, or by a willing friend. Well done to all the girls who took to the stage, you all walked with such confidence!
Sixth Form students Elysia Kenyon and Pippa Sloan compered the show and provided the audience with information on the themes and ideas behind the designs.
Congratulations to everyone who was involved in the show, and well done on your fabulous creations!
