In one of Huddersfield New College’s most anticipated yearly events, 70 students from across the AS and A2 Textiles classes took part in HNC’s Annual Fashion Show, modelling their own creations to a specially choreographed performance.
With themes ranging from surfaces to ‘autobiography’, the range of hand-made, student designed garments were spectacular, and the level of detail and skill are a tribute to the excellent Textiles courses we offer here at HNC.
Our students- turned models- were cheered on during the 6pm show by students from local schools including Honley High, Huddersfield Grammar and Holmfirth High, before welcoming their friends and families for a second showing at 8pm.
After a day of choreographing their own routines and selecting their catwalk music, the students put on a flawless show which was also attended by college staff, as well as the Mayor and Mayoress Designate.
Vicky Close, course leader for Textiles, said: “I always look forward to our annual fashion show because it’s a fantastic way to celebrate the students’ hard work from the academic year, plus it’s an excellent opportunity for the two year groups to work together and it inspires the first year students for their second year at Huddersfield New College.
“They weren’t daunted by the prospect of appearing on the Lawrence Batley Theatre’s main stage and the night was wonderful.”
The Fashion Show marks the end of the A2 students’ time with the college, and serves as inspiration to the AS students to make next year’s show even better. Judging by the talent we saw this year, that’s no mean feat, but we have every faith that next years event will be even bigger and even better!
