Fashion and textiles students at King’s Ely showed off their creativity during a masterclass with famous designer Juliana Sissons.

The group of Year 11 designers took part in the workshop whilst visiting London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, where Juliana was a fashion designer in residence.

Juliana, who is a knitwear designer and pattern cutter, has made clothes for Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Shelley Fox and Koji Tatsuno.

The visit involved pupils carrying out research in the museum’s galleries before producing sculptural garment designs in the workshop.
