The Fashion Academy 2011

The Fashion Academy 2011

From July 4th – 8th, fifty pupils took their place on the CCS Fashion Academy. An inspiring and challenging week that is supported by our industry / project sponsor TOPSHOP.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday brought designing, making and the arrival of the six TOPSHOP pattern cutters / machinists. These talented professionals assisted the pupils in producing a wonderful garment from a paper design.

Thursday was equally intense as pupils began rehearsing, show orders and choreography were finalised.

Finally Friday “Showday” brought great anticipation and excitement as each concept, design, stitch and strand was brought together for The Fashion Academy Showcase! TOPSHOP designers and directors returned to school to judge each collection. A runner-up and winner prize was awarded for each (Goody bags with TOPSHOP vouchers £25 and £50 respectively).

Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up, but equally to everyone that took part in the week. Hard work, endeavor, diligence, and creativity were a just a few of the qualities displayed by our pupils. A fantastic week! Well done to everyone involved!
