Students wow the crowds at Graduate Fashion Show

Graduate Fashion Show, 2016, Tramshed, Cardiff

University students dazzled the crowds on Friday at a spectacular end-of-year show.

The Graduate Fashion Show at the Tramshed in Grangetown, Cardiff, saw the culmination of months of hard work by undergraduates studying a variety of courses at the University of South Wales (USW).

It featured a 2D and 3D exhibition, garment displays, fashion shows, film and digital work, fashion photography and performance pieces, all put together by Fashion Design, Fashion Promotion and Fashion Marketing and Retail degree students.

“This was an exciting and ambitious project which combined the talent and skills of all USW fashion-based subject areas for the first time,” said Claire Ritchie, who is BA Fashion Promotion Course Leader and Senior Lecturer in MA Fashion Retail.

“There was a constant flow of people at the show, including representatives of some major fashion companies in South Wales and further afield, and some of the smaller niche providers, who could view the talents of our students first-hand

“For the undergraduates, it was also designed to be as real-life as possible. When they leave us and go into the fashion sector, they’ll be expected to put on shows within weeks of getting the brief - and this was just like that.

“They turned it around in impressive time. There were hiccups, as there always will be at a major event, but they got there and were able to show the hundreds of visitors exactly the we can achieve here at USW.”
