Fashion graduates set up shop in Great Western Arcade


Graduates from Birmingham City University’s Fashion Design course are exhibiting their work at a Best of Brum pop-up shop this week in Birmingham’s Great Western Arcade.

Dressed like a working studio, the shop at 18 Great Western Arcade features a sewing machine, fabric rolls and pattern cutting equipment.

Portfolios and garments are also on display, created by the students who graduated from Birmingham City University’s School of Fashion and Textiles earlier this year.
