Students display stunning runway creations

7th July 2022

Students from Stratford-upon-Avon College rocked the runway as they showed off their fabulous creations at the end of year Fashion show.

The event was held at Bell Court in Stratford. Students prepared themselves in the Escape Arts Youth Centre whilst the event began in Bell Court’s courtyard. The show began with a performance by Stratford-upon-Avon College Music students, pianist Darcey Prodanovic and singer Katie Volkhaerts.

They performed a gorgeous set of songs to engage the ever-growing crowd before the Fashion show began. The show was then opened by Dance lecturer Philip Watson-Smith, who introduced some dance students to perform to start the show.

Students studying Fashion and Make Up for Stage & Screen prepared various looks as part of their final major projects. They were responsible for the whole look from design to creation and they pitched in to be models as well.

The Runway section began with the Make Up for Stage & Screen students’ creations. Each and every look was varied and mesmerising. They used techniques and skills drawn from their training at college.

Above are just some of the amazing creations by our students

Emily Grant was inspired by their casualty module and created a look highlighting the devastation of war by producing the look of a war-injured amputee. Natasha Witte was inspired by the Fantasy module and created a fantasy creature based on the colours and science of tropical wildlife and plants.

Emily’s casualty inspired look was incredibly realistic and Natasha’s fantasy look was interesting and a visual sensation

This was followed by the Fashion students. Stephanie Kitchener’s 1920s Gangster inspired jumpsuit was stylish and chic. Evelyn Hughes was inspired by Childhood Dreams and Memories and created a beautiful piece covered in childlike drawings and dressing up in mummy and daddy’s clothes.

Stephanie used the 1920’s as inspiration for her Gangster and flapper style look whilst Evelyn used the theme of Childhood memories to create her fabulous piece

The work was a wonderful display of talent. The crowd enjoyed the show immensely, with the Mayor of Stratford-upon-Avon Gill Cleave staying after the show to congratulate the students.
