Our fashion students showed Birmingham what they had to offer when they launched the Inspired Festival with an exclusive catwalk event.

The budding designers had already previewed their collections at Graduate Fashion Week but got to put their creations solely in the spotlight at the launch on Tuesday 9 June.

Our Fashion Design course caters for students who intend to pursue careers in the fashion industry and involves both conceptual and trend-driven design work.

The course culminates in a final collection and it’s this work that was showcased on our Inspired Festival catwalk.

Richard O’Shea

Our students are encouraged to experiment with both creative cutting techniques and traditional skills. Richard O’Shea explains how he translated his “childhood indoctrination” concept by creating over-sized baby grows with more masculine design features.
