IDEAschool’s Fashion Discipline Leader Cheryl Downie, who is overseeing the fashion show, says: “We are really excited to be showcasing work produced by our fashion diploma and degree students as it’s the first time ever we have presented garments from all three levels.

“The students have been hard at work both making their work and preparing the gallery spaces, with truly inspiring creations to be displayed,” he says.
