Fashion Students show off at The Ridings

21st June 2017

Fashion and Textiles students from Wakefield College showcased their final year pieces at our Summer Fashion Show on Thursday 15th June.

Hosted by resident stylist and merchandiser Tina Gill, in our new middle mall events space, the show featured summer looks from stores, alongside the student pieces. Guests were also treated to live music from Wakefield College Music students.

Our Marketing Manager, Sara Hassan, comments: “Our new events space was the perfect setting for the show and we were all wowed by the talent and craftsmanship displayed by the students. The pieces worked well alongside looks from our stores and the day got our shoppers thinking about their summer wardrobes.”

Michelle Mutch, Curriculum Development Manager for the Arts, from Wakefield College says, “We’re so proud of the hard work our students have put into the pieces and their course throughout the year. This show gave them the ideal opportunity to present what they have worked on, and get some real experience outside of the classroom working with businesses and the community.”
