Dear Year 3

This is a reminder that you MUST collect your garments by the end of Monday.  Please do not leave anything in the studio, you should also be emptying your lockers and removing any bags of fabric, rubbish etc.  The studios will need to be back in working order by Tuesday. Anything left will start to be removed and binned.

Thank you for this of you who attended the meeting with Amber, the External Examiner to give feedback on your experiences.  I very much look forward to her report in August. She was really impressed by your work and is looking forward to see how our portfolios develop on her next visit in June.

Year 1 information

May 3, 2016

Dear All

Thank you for your help during the internal show – i hope it was an interesting experience for you all and gave you an insight in what year 3 entails.

You should now be finalising your internal placement journals for Siobhan.

14 Fashion Design Students were selected for the press show, and will still require help – you should be available and willing to offer support in the coming weeks, you should come to G214 and see what is required.  Please do not disappear, term officially ends on 24th June 2016.

The Press show is on June 3rd, we will be expecting you to help out back stage, dressing, running etc.  This is a smaller calmer show and a great opportunity to get involved in the excitement and fun of an external event.

There is also the static degree show at The Truman Brewery from 15th-20th June.  This is a great opportunity to see the work from all Art and Design students at Middlesex University, as well as portfolios from all Fashion directorate students.

There will be a meeting on Thursday 12th May at 11am in G214c with Myself and Bronwen to talk about what to expect next year, you are ALL expected to attend, I will be taking a register.

See you all there!
