From Scotland To Wonderland fashion show was a huge success and we are proud to say we raised loads of money for our chosen charity. We would like to thank everyone who was involved in the show and making the night happen!
Another desginer confirmed for the show is recently graduated fashion student Claudette. I was lucky enough to take part in the Glasgow fashion show Nightwalk a few weeks ago and she was one of the designers at the show . I absoutely loved her collection and excited to see the pieces again.
Some of Claudettes latest desgins.
On Tuesday evening a group of students from both the A and B classes will be staying behind to cast models for the fashion show. We are currently still in desperate need of models and all are welcome to try out. Today we have a few students from the college coming up to see us for a short casting meeting after they saw our posters around the college.
Currently the A class is contacting Scottish based designers to participate in the upcoming fashion show, some of these designers including M.A.D Clothing and Splashing in Puddles.
Meanwhile the B class is brainstorming fairytales to incorporate into the fashion show, stories such as Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella will be featured. The class has split into groups each focusing on a different tale and how to bring it to life on the catwalk.
Students have been bring in some pieces from their own wardrobes that could be used to help modernise and add a scottish twist to these classic stories.
Preparations for the fashion show are currently well underway!
We are the current Fashion Merchandising students at City of Glasgow college. We are approaching the end of the course and preparing for our end of year fashion show, which is going to take place in a few months time. The fashion show is showcasing talented up and coming Scottish designers with an added fairytale twist in the middle of the show. As well as showcasing Scottish designers we are more importantly raising money and awareness for Carers Trust. Carers Trust is a new charity that offers support and recognition to young people that could be caring for a relative or friend who is ill. They aim to ensure that advice, information and support is available to all young carers. After speaking to the charity a few weeks ago we are certainly keen and excited to work with them and hopefully make a change to young carers lives today.
This blog will be updated regularly with posts and little updates on how the classes are getting along with the fashion show.
