Students studying fashion and textiles at King’s Ely are exhibiting their work at the Knitting and Stitching Show in London until this weekend.
The A-level pupils are showcasing their “flamboyant garment designs” and fashion accessories at the four-day event at Alexandra Palace that began on Thursday, October 11.
Alison Rhodes, director of art at King’s, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students and is a valuable experience that contributes to their coursework, UCAS applications and future employment.
“Our students will be able to investigate new materials sourced from the show, as well as make contact with professional designers.”
