Fashion and design students at King’s Ely learnt tips and advice from award-winning fashion designer José Hendo.
The masterclass saw José – who is the go-to designer of Ugandan royalty and government officials - teaching A Level students how to create sculptural accessory designs using barkcloth and sinamay.
The workshop was a great opportunity for the young designers to explore and develop new ideas, leading to an inventive range of headwear and neckwear designs being created.
José said: “All of the students developed highly original outcomes and were ready to experiment.
“They took direction easily and worked diligently.
