Recently, students from BA (Hons) Fashion, BA (Hons) Architecture and BA (Hons) Textiles courses collaborated in cross-course teams while responding to a live project based in Poole.
This popular project takes place between the courses each year, and has been running for the past six years. Placed into mixed teams, students were given a word and a location in Poole to respond to in a creative way.

Third year Textiles students Aimee Hartley and Ciara Hamilton were awarded prizes at the exhibition held in London last week.
The students were asked to produce designs from a choice of three briefs, and research and develop product material aimed at a specific clientele that the business works with regularly. One of the projects was aimed at a Middle East market so the students had to consider the cultural impact of their designs. The project mirrored how the business reports back to its clients and then takes projects forward to the next stage, so provided the students with valuable industry experience.
The company have worked for clients including Selfridges, Liberty and The Conran Shop, and love to be inspired by fresh ideas and creative thinking to create exciting new products for Christmas events and parties worldwide.
Isabelle’s entry was shortlisted in the final eight, and she attended a private viewing at the Lewis & Wood showroom.
