Fashion students opened their latest exhibition at the College this week.

The Denim exhibition features work from first-year students studying UAL Extended Diploma Fashion.

The eight week project focused on students creating a garment, illustrations and mood boards focusing on a decade.

Yvette Bundell, course director, said: “The private view for Denim exhibition was very busy with friends, family and past students all commenting on the excellent quality of work on display. The show celebrates the fantastic progress made by our first year UAL Extended Diploma (Fashion and Textiles) students. Staging such a successful exhibition featuring work from students who have only been at the college for one term, is a testament to the hard work, determination and ambition of both the students and first-year tutors.”

Hannah focused on the 60s decade and made a jacket for the exhibition.

“I focused on the 60s and in particular hippies, the peace movement and protests. The colours in my work are inspired by ‘flower power’ and John Lennon.”

Jakub created jeans for the exhibition and focused on the 80s for his project.

“I have made a pair of jeans and my inspiration behind the garment is the 80s club scene.

I started with a pair of base jeans and I have taken them apart and I have added pieces to the jeans to make them more baggy. I created folds on the garment from the inside. I have also created a waist band, which I have dyed and heat pressed to make a design.”

The exhibition will be open until Friday 31st January at Hortensia Gallery, Chelsea Centre, SW10 0QS. For more details click here.
