A fashion exhibition staged by Year 2 students at the Winchester School of Art which looks at a fashion idea right the way through from conception to production has had to be extended due to its popularity.
Josh Sudell and Aneesha Bailoor are both fashion marketing students at the Winchester School of Art and Josh told us how the exhibition came together: “Fashion really comes round in circles, and that’s what we’ve been exploring for this exhibition; exploring how trends work, how they build up to something and how they appear time and again.
“The trend we came up with was one based around anarchy and rebellion – and so the collection is denim-based and has lots of rips and patches and slogans, which are really there to invigorate and empower the people who wear them.”
Winchester Fashion Show Extended – Team Work Essential
Aneesha is really pleased with the result: “I think it’s really worked well because of the two pathways of management and marketing working by coming together. It’s a flow, right from the beginning until the product reaches the consumer – it’s quite a thorough process.”
Aneesha explains how they all worked as a team: We had a lot of group work, and presented it to the other students. There was a lot of going backwards and forwards – we came up with our trend and presented that to the management team. Then it came back to us and we had to market it.
Josh was also called on to model – perhaps because of being one of the few males available: “I think it’s part of something that is accepted – it kind of just happens.” Aneesha is also pleased by that: “It’s great to have had such a diverse range of models. It’s really nice to have had a variety of models to choose from and to see how everyone interpreted the brief.”
Both agree that the end product has been well accepted by the public.
You can see their results at the Westside Foyer Gallery in the Winchester School of Art in Park Lane until 15 February 2016.
