Catwalk Show 2011

 

A FASHIONABLE WAY TO SUPPORT CHARITY

Priestley’s annual catwalk fashion show took centre stage as the College’s community united in support of the Warrington Grassroots Charity, which helps local voluntary and community groups.

During both an afternoon and evening run, the event showcased garments, accessories and body based pieces designed by those studying a range of courses from the Art and Design curriculum area, which were then modelled by fellow Priestley students.

Meanwhile students studying BTEC Business played a key role in managing the event for a core unit on their course.

A range of local Warrington businesses supported the show including MC2 Hair Design who provided hair and make-up for the models whilst a range of others donated gifts to the raffle.

Commenting on the show, Art Tutor, Emma Lingard, said, “For the Art and Design students this event was really special allowing them to show their pieces to a live audience, whilst at the same time, supporting such a worthwhile cause.”

Business Tutor, Julie McDonald, added, “It was really useful for the Business students to play a key role in the management of this event, which was some six months in the planning. The results spoke for themselves on what was a great day¬†for the College.”

 

Recycling 25/02/11

 

For the Recycling Assignment it is intended that you investigate, research and develop a personal angle to the assignment, exploring the potential of the theme. Your personal research will follow the design development cycle through to final fashion outcomes.

Mica Hope Phillips

Dress recreated from unwanted fabric. My aim is to create a garment that shows an innovative approach to reusing unwanted clothes so that they become desirable and promote a positive message on reuse.

Kevin Boardman

My task was to recycle and breathe new life into the common shirt by deconstructing and reconstructing it in imaginative ways. My aim is to create a garment that shows an innovative approach to reusing unwanted clothes so that they become desirable and promote a positive message on reuse. The garment should distort or change the shape of the body in some way and will be suitable for someone to wear.

Samantha Fearns

Cushion created from 100% recycled shirts. My origional idea was to create the ruffled effect all over the piece but I decided this may be too much and detract from the overall look. Also I have been able to show the different elements of the shirt and create a focal point in the design.

Eleanor Rickers

Recycled dress made from hundreds of plastic bags and bin liners. The corset is knitted using large knitting needles to make the process a quicker and more secure structure. The garment also features a selection of butterfly clips to help with a more glamourous look. The skirt element of the piece is created from bin bags stuffed with plastic bags to crearte a fuller look.

Floral dress made from natural form studies.

 

 

Natalie Gavin

A garment developed for the Chelsea Flower Show. I wanted to capture the intensity of colour which you see from flowers in full bloom during the summer months. The floral element balances well with the delicate cream fabric of the dress making it fresh looking and attractive to wear. I wanted my garment to look like something you would actually consider wearing rather than an inspired theatrical piece from the theme.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jessie Stringer Fewtrill

A dress created around the theme of shells. The garment was created for the Chelsea Flower Show and is more costume based than practical wear. There is also influence from 1980s power dressing in the shape and cut of the garment including exaggerated shoulders.

ce this is a one-column layout, the .content is not floated. An image placeholder was used in this layout in the .header where you'll likely want to place a logo. It is recommended that you remove the placeholder and replace it with your own linked logo. Be aware that if you use the Property inspector to navigate to your logo image using the SRC field (instead of removing and replacing the placeholder), you should remove the inline background and display properties. These inline styles are only used to make the logo placeholder show up in browsers for demonstration purposes.

Chantelle Holland

Summer Dress based around the theme of the Chelsea Flower Show. The featured sash of the dress is developed from the Camellia flower in bloom which was delicate and feminine in quality and complemented the garments colour scheme.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Natalie Cheung (Birchwood High School)
BTEC National Diploma
Art and Design Level 3

Natalie is a very able student who achieved all of her GCSE's at grades A*-B and came to Priestley College to study a BTEC National Diploma course in Art and Design alongside AS subjects. During her first year Natalie achieved an AS grade B in Accounts and an AS grade A in Textiles, combining these subjects with the first year of her National Diploma.
Natalie has just completed the second year of her BTEC National Diploma course where she developed her work more specifically towards Fashion/Costume Design. She is progressing to the London School of Fashion to study Fashion Design. Natalie achieved a Distinction grade for all of her 18 BTEC National Diploma Units, gaining triple distinction grades, or three grade A's at A level. This is an exceptional achievement from an exceptional student.


Natalie worked tirelessly with enthusiasm, commitment and motivation throughout; it was no surprise that she was offered places at all the top Universities, including London Westminster.
On entry to the course Natalie was determined to follow a textile/ fashion pathway, developing her portfolio and her designs which progressed towards a Catwalk show at the end of the year.
She was able to work independently having gained confidence as the course progressed; this enabled her to overcome a lengthy absence due to ill health. Natalie had to get fit very quickly to participate in a visit to New York where she utilised the inspiration from the visit to produce her designs and costumes for her Final Major Project.
Her final exhibition and display was outstanding and comparable with some degree standard work.
An inspirational addition to the Catwalk shows of the future and a name to watch out for!
