Students gear up for fashion show

Macclesfield College fashion students are set to hold their annual end-of-year catwalk show on 17th June at Charles Roe House in Macclesfield.

The fashion students will be marking the 300th anniversary celebration of Charles Roe’s birthday, as well as the 35th anniversary of the passing of Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis, as they present the fashion show in Martin O'Neill's Joy Division photography exhibition space inside Charles Roe House.

Angela Devoti, Course Leader for Fashion at Macclesfield College, commented, “I am delighted to showcase our end-of-year fashion show at Charles Roe House this June. The show will be a real coming together of our town’s incredible and unique heritage with the future creatives, and a celebration of craftsmanship, creativity and innovation. I would also especially like to thank Julie Hamer of Incubation Arts for all her support and Martin O'Neill.”

The fashion show will be a ticketed event for the students’ family only due to the limited space - however the show is to be filmed and will feature in the College’s Art, Design and Media end-of-year exhibition which is open to the public and held at the Macclesfield College Park Lane campus on Thursday 25th and Tuesday 30th June between 10am and 4pm.

Visitors to the College exhibition will be able to watch the film of the catwalk show which will be on display in the College’s main foyer entrance along with an installation of students’ outfits on mannequins. Year 1 and 2 fashion portfolios and students’ final major projects will also be on display in the College’s art department along with work from students from courses in Graphics, Media, Photography, Art and Ceramics.
