This Is Hastings had not only the absolute pleasure of witnessing the end of year Fashion Show at Sussex Coast College this Wednesday evening, but also had added bonus of exclusive access behind the scenes of what has fast become one of the must-attend events of the creative calendar.
With 125 garments conceived, designed and created by students from across the fashion courses, one is immediately struck by the high quality of imaginative output.
The catwalk was quickly filled with annual group collections based on “Little Black Dress,” “Aztec” and “Rock and Roll” as well as individual collections of the students’ choosing – with inspiration anywhere from Alice in Wonderland to Entomology.
The audience was taken on a stylish rollercoaster through countless fashion worlds from the home of Disney-style witches to the elegance of the Chinese Theatre.
All excellently choreographed with each item of clothing holding its own unique poise and personality
Mere hours before, This Is Hastings had witnessed the slightly reluctant model volunteers gingerly practicing their tottering down the catwalk in death-defying high heels. Come the show, nerves had more than settled and all that remained were confident struts and snappy pouts (with ridiculously fast changing times in between)
With the final lights fading and the models and designers returning to accept well deserved rapturous applause, This Is Hastings is exceptionally pleased to have experienced yet another top quality showcase of young creative talent in the town.
If you would like to experience the show for yourself, you can by ordering the specially produced Fashion Show DVD, which will not only contain the full glorious show, but numerous behind the scenes an backstage featurettes.
