Y3 Keep Calm and Carry On

April 14, 2014

Dear Y3,


I will be in on Wednesday 16th April 11am-2pm if any of you want advice on your work (if not in the studio, I will be in the office).


Best wishes,



April 11, 2014

Please read carefully - Some things have been added since the email.

Rickets Quadrangle – Main college Building
Thursday 1st of May – 4pm start

The show will last approximately 2 hours with a short interval half way.


COLLECTION HAND-IN – WEDNESDAY 30TH APRIL – 4PM IN G203 – Please note if collections are unfinished, missing garments you will NOT be allowed to show and pulled from the running order.
- Clear Garment Bags - Please make sure that these are not too long to hang on a rail – if they are, they’ll get caught and dragged in the move from The Grove to The College Building – it may be raining/muddy etc
– Full Name on front
– Clear image/photo of your look exactly as you want it to be styled/worn (Front & Back)  TAPED, SEWN STAPLED – NOT PINNED ON!!!!
– Any accessories (Earrings MUST be clip-on)
– Shoes (Boys size 9/10 – Girls 6/7)
- HANGERS – Please use STURDY preferably WOODEN hangers – if hangers break this will end up on the floor!!
You will have until 5pm on Wednesday to clear out of the studio, take anything you will need as we will meeting over in the main college building on Thursday morning.
The doors will then be locked.
YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE EARLY and ALL DAY THURSDAY  as we will be doing fittings on the models etc. and you may be needed at any time by the show producers. If you are planning to change for the show, bring a change of clothing with you as there will not be time for you to go home and get ready.

YOU MUST HAND IN YOUR FINAL, FULL COLOUR, FINISHED LINE-UP OF 6 LOOKS  - 10 COPIES – some of you still haven’t done this – copies need to be on my desk by Wednesday 16th April and a copy emailed to me– we will be using these for the show running order so those who don’t hand in will not be in the show!
- Looks 1-3 must be the garments you are showing for internal show
– Full name, Fashion Design, Typed on the top right corner (Font must be ARIEL in capitals size 14)
– You may include any sponsors Logo at the bottom right but no Personal/Brand Logo, it only distracts.
– Make your Line-up clear and professional, not stylised.

You are all doing really well, keep working hard and keep the faith! We believe in you all!


Guys you must respect the opening hours of the building. I have already spoken to you all about staying past 10pm but now we are having issues with students attempting to enter at 6am!

If problems with this continue, the studio opening hours will be reduced and none of us want that.

Easter dates and hours have already been sent to you but remember Easter is Saturday opening times- 10am until 6pm


Thanks and good luck!

Paul, Richard, Gulsun and Malena
