Fashion learners entertain at the Carnival of Curios

Fashion learners from the Grimsby school of Art showcased their talents today when they presented their final collections. Learners from the Level 2 Extended Diploma in Art and Design and the Level 3 Art and Design Foundation course have worked tirelessly over the past few months to complete their stunning catwalk collections.

Guests were treated to a diverse show with collections gracing the catwalk inspired by architecture, society and simplicity to name a few, resulting in a striking show. Hannah York, Programme Leader Art and Design Level 3, said:

“Their final major collections were put together over the past 10 weeks and the learners did everything from initial development through to the final garments. They have developed so much and now have such a good foundation to build on when they progress on to University or employment. Seeing them all walk together was the highlight for me, I’m so proud of them.”

Foundation Art and Design Learner, Hope Vivins said: “ I based my final collection on Venice as I’m in love with the city. I’ve always been interested in masquerades and costume design and I wanted to challenge myself to make bigger dresses.

“At sixth form it was practical based and about making garments, but since being at the Grimsby School of Art I’ve learnt design and drawing and have created something from beginning to end which I didn’t do before.”

Hope will be furthering her studies when she progresses on to University of Wimbledon to study costume design and one day to aspires to working in theatre as a costume designer.
