White on!

Friday 24 June 2016

The end of year show by Art, Design, Fashion & Textile students at Bedford College was a ‘white winner’.

The theme of the catwalk show in the South Bank Arts Centre theatre was “The White Project” and the fabrics and fashions created by students demonstrated the range of skills which flourish on the award-winning courses.              

Among them was the work of Megan Schneider (1st year HND student), selected to submit her work for the internationally recognised 2016 Hand & Lock prize. Her project focused on creating skilfully embroidered and embellished fashion fabrics that stand the test of time, under the project title ‘Objects of Desire’. Her highly accomplished and innovative creations were on display as part of the end of year show.

At the end of the fashion show, Director of the Arts Sue Blackman presented prizes across the whole range of Arts & Design courses. The finale was a line-up of all the students with their specially designed “pencil” certificates.

Three degrees of success

At the end of year show, Josie collected a ‘top of the course’ certificate to her work from the college. Her team partner Ellie made a brief appearance at the show having got married earlier that day (17 June) and Emma was celebrating her work being used to help promote the Castle Quay Weekend on 18 and 19 June.

All three girls are staying on at Bedford College for a third year to complete their degrees in Graphic Design. From September 2016 for the first time the degree-finishing year can be taken at Bedford College. This new option means students can complete their Higher Education at the lower-cost option of Bedford College - which regularly beats universities in national Art & Design competitions.

“This is the seventh consecutive year we have won prizes at the YCN competing against universities,” said Advanced Practioner Jeffrey Tribe,

“Our legacy of success and the approved to run the Level 6 third year degree in Graphic Design go hand in hand.”
