GC fashion students use creativity to commemorate

On November 11 students from the Gloucestershire College Fashion Academy remembered the soldiers of World War II in their own special way.

Second year HND Fashion students created wearable designs to commemorate the Battle of the Somme, which they showcased on the catwalk at Pittville Pump Room in Cheltenham.

The fashion show was part of Migration in Diversity 2016 - a Gloucestershire festival presented by Rainford Simms Collective. The festival was aimed at using creativity to commemorate, whilst helping emerging artists and designers to develop, explore and unfold their potential, under one roof.

The Collective aims to create a cohesive community spirit in which all strands of the county's diverse community are respected and applauded.
