LONDON’S Stitch Festival was such an amazing opportunity for our young designers to showcase their work!

Around 18,000 people attended the action-packed event at the capital’s Business Design Centre from February 27th through to March 1st, and among the fascinating array of stands was stand GB4 – an exhibition of striking garments made by our A Level and Fashion and Textiles students.

Alison Rhodes, Director of Art at King’s Ely, said: “The exhibition was visited by existing and new King’s Ely parents and families, industry representatives, members of the public, the press, designers and representatives from universities as well.

“The exhibition was an amazing way to promote King’s Ely and the quality of work that our students are producing, and it has formed an important part of university applications, alongside contributing to student interviews and future employment.

“Valuable university contacts were made with the London College of Fashion and Chelsea College of Arts, where student ambassadors are keen to talk to our pupils with regards to their university applications.

“Approximately 18,000 people visited this show over the four days and we are now exploring the many contacts made during this exciting period.

“We have also been invited to exhibit our Fashion Design at Alexandra Palace in October 2020, which is an invaluable extension to our students’ educational experience.”
