D.T. Fashion Design
In Design Technology Year 8 students have had the opportunity to work with a corporate sponsor company Dimensions. Over 12 weeks the company sent in two designers to work with students on designing and manufacturing upcycled garments.
The experience was a valuable lesson in how skills learnt in school apply to real life jobs. Students also looked at ethical manufacture and developed their own textile skills and design sketching.
Finally students presented their work to Dimensions designers: Sally and Janine, in a catwalk show and exhibition.
