This project started with the generous donation of dead-stock fabrics from Burberry to a number of British Fashion Council member Universities, to support the students and encourage sustainable practices.
As the original Burberry Factory is located on Jewry Street in Winchester, currently housing the Winchester Churches Nighshelter (a local homeless charity) WSA BA Fashion Design and the Winchester Churches Nighshelter came together to raise awareness of the charity through the creative sustainable design work of 2nd and 3rd year Fashion Design students showcased at the WSA Gallery during Winchester Fashion Week 2021.
The shoot on location at the Winchester Churches Nightshelter, stitches the project together through time and place. The hair and make-up was created using environmentally considerate products and materials, incorporating a future focused approach aligned with the vision of the WSA BA Fashion Design Programme.
We would like to thank Burberry, the British Fashion Council, Sarah Davies and Winchester Fashion Week, Nancy Judge and the Winchester Churches Nighshelter, the student designers, the student assistants, the staff, models, photographer and hair and make-up artists that made this exhibition possible!
