Talented Fashion and Textiles students from King’s Ely are exhibiting their work at the prestigious Knitting and Stitching Show.

A Level Fashion and Textiles students will be showcasing their flamboyant garment designs and accessories at the four-day event at London’s iconic Alexandra Palace from Thursday, 11 – Sunday 14 October.

The Knitting and Stitching Shows are the definitive events for anyone with a love of textile based craft. The event this month is the biggest textile event in the UK, with hundreds of workshops, demonstrations, interactive features and professionally curated galleries, as well as 300 exhibitors selling specialist craft supplies.

Director of Art at King’s Ely Senior, Alison Rhodes, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students and is a valuable experience that contributes to their coursework, UCAS applications and future employment. Our students will be able to investigate new materials sourced from the show, as well as make contact with professional designers.”
