On Monday 6th November, 45 Textiles students travelled by coach to the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington, London.
Students went in groups with a member of staff around the museum visiting the vast array of exhibits, from jewellery to photography and from paintings to sculpture.
The main purpose of our trip was to see the breathtaking displays of Coco Chanel’s work in the exclusive display. We were able to see how she became such a successful fashion designer during her lifetime, creating iconic hats, dresses, jewellery, suits, fabrics. Many students were inspired to create their own beautiful outfits.
Thank you to all the staff and students who came along, making it a successful day.
