Fashion students hit the catwalk

Published: 16 June 2004

The work of the graduating students of the BA Fashion programme at Winchester School of Art was presented at Graduate Fashion Week in London in June, in a show featuring professional models.

The catwalk show of the students' collections was enthusiastically received by the invited audience from the fashion trade and the press. It showcased the work of fashion and knitwear students and represented an eclectic mix of styles and thematic influences across menswear and womenswear. John Hopkins, leader of the BA Fashion programme, said ' the University can be justly proud of the work of the students that has been featured at this major fashion event. The Fashion course has a high reputation and the quality and innovation in the work displayed by the students fully justifies this reputation'. In addition the School of Art had a display stand featuring the work of the students and the courses at WSA for the many thousands of visitors to Graduate Fashion Week.
