Art and design students from West Cheshire College organised an end of year fashion show that showcased their final project collections. The show, held at the College’s Ellesmere Port Campus, featured models wearing garments based on a variety of themes, ideas and materials created by 21 students.
The eclectic range of collections included Seven Deadly Sins, Tailored Street Wear, OAP Chic, You Are What You Eat, Hippy Project, Memories of the Great War and Gingham Style.
Fashion student, Stefan Efobi, 18, from Chester, said: “I spent four weeks designing and planning my collection and another week and a half producing the garments. “I produced seven garments, themed for each day of the week and based it upon the poem, ‘Monday’s Child’. I wanted each piece to be clean and streamlined.
“I’m leaving College this summer and I have been accepted to study fashion at Manchester Metropolitan University from September. I am really excited to start there and carry on studying fashion.”
Art and design student, Bryony Stark, 19, from Hawarden, who based her fashion collection on the Seven Deadly Sins, said: “All of my dresses in the collection were inspired by one of the seven deadly sins.
“I really enjoyed the fashion show as it was a fantastic opportunity to showcase my creativity and I was so pleased with how my garments looked on the catwalk.
“In September I am hoping to go to Manchester Metropolitan University to study fashion design.”
Peter Foster, art and design tutor at West Cheshire College, said: “I was amazed by the standard that was showcased during the fashion show. The evening was a huge success; the time, energy and creativity the students have put in to preparing for this show just proves how hard work really pays off.
“The show was a great opportunity for students to show off how skilled and unique every single one of them is. I know they will all be successful in the future and I wish them all the best.”
