Hello and Welcome Chicago

Working in the Textile Design for fashion and Interiors studios and workshops, for the next fortnight, are students from Columbia College, Chicago, USA.

We are delighted to be working with their tutor Justin and students:

Molly. Rebecca,Laura,Sarah and Estefania.

They kicked off the first day with an introduction to their current projects and aims and we got a fascinating insight into their final collections.

Our students are now engaging with them in the studios to discover what a typical working day would be for them back home and to exchange good practice and skills.


Every year the first year students fall in love with Paris.

We spend 4 days investigating  forecasting, studios, styling, design, shops (and shopping) and, I believe in the evening, more shopping!

Here we are, home again with  some  wonderful memories

Here’s to next year.
