Students from The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London's BTEC National Diploma in Fashion took to the catwalk on Wednesday 9 June in a thrilling end of year show.
The culmination of a lot of hard work throughout the year, the Show, provides an opportunity to experiment with craft, design and textiles, while at the same time enchanting an audience.
Lecturer, Nancy Mpanzu, an accomplished designer with great expertise in putting on red-carpet events throughout London, said: “In preparation for the show, these students have shown exceptional talent and taken painstaking care. As consumers, we get used to seeing high street fashion as cheap and disposable – yet these garments, which have all the appeal of the high street, are well crafted and constructed.”
The fashion end of year show is a sought after event in the College’s busy calendar. The students, who describe influences as diverse as Dior, Galliano and Karen Millen in their work, all plan to pursue a career in fashion and textiles at university.
Student, Maxine Ford, who cites Elie Saab as her favourite designer, said: “I love the creativity in fashion and I love illustration too. I hope to have my own boutique one day and I really want to develop extravagance and femininity in my work.”
The College has recently established a higher education partnership progression with the world renowned London College of Fashion.
