Barton Perevil sixth form hits the catwalk

More than 100 students put their creations on the catwalk at college’s charity fashion show.

It was the Barton Peveril Sixth Form College’s 20th annual show, with the 115 students, studying AS and A2 level Textiles, raising money for Breast Cancer Care.

The extravaganza was a compilation of two showcases entitled Kaleidoscopic.

Students were encouraged to explore the traditional and be experimental with more unorthodox materials to create innovative, quirky, one-off garments displaying an exciting mix of colour, texture, silhouette and form.

A collection of ‘deconstructed’ garments also featured in the show, all reinvented and recycled from charity garments and everyday objects.

Each A2 student crafted their ‘deconstructed’ ensemble in a challenging single week of lessons

Many students have successfully continued their textile and fashion studies, gaining places on prestigious courses across the country including London College of Fashion, Central Saint Martins, Derby and De Montfort universities.
