South Gloucestershire & Stroud College Textile Students in partnership with Oxfam Stroud

South Gloucestershire & Stroud College Fashion and Textile students - Elizabeth Willett, Jennifer Moorby, Rosie Holditch, Rebecca Farrell, Ciara McGurk have been invited to dress the window of Stroud Oxfam shop in King Street.

The project that is the inspiration for the window display was based on the student's five day action packed study trip to Rome. 

They gathered a fantastic amount of primary and secondary research by responding to a range of exciting sources including exhibition visits, architecture, graffiti and urban street style.  Their research was recorded using a variety of techniques in the vibrant, handmade sketchbooks they made at college before their departure.

On return the students worked hard to develop their research and ideas.  The process of mixed media design work and experimental sampling resulting in the construction of a final garment.

The five students curating the display were voted overall winners by the rest of their class.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the students to work with Oxfam and present a public facing display of their work.

Oxfam Manager Julia Trow said: “We are pleased to be supporting future talent by showing the work of the students at SGS College's Stroud Campus."
