5th October 2016
Camberwell, Central St Martins, Chelsea College of arts, Wimbledon college of arts, London college of Fashion and London college of communication.
A Tutor from UAL came to talk to us about the college’s that make up the University of the Arts London and what they specialise in. I took notes but I won’t be applying to London because I have responsibilities and family in Blackburn. On a positive note, when my peers talk about the colleges they are applying for I will have some idea about where they are talking about but otherwise it wasn’t really applicable to me.
FASHION 3D, FOOTWEAR AND ACCESSORIES.
A tutor for London college of fashion came to tell us about the BA Hons Cordwainers footwear: product design and innovation course. She talked about what you can gain from the course, industry, links to contacts and client projects. We watched a short clip about London college of Fashion and were shown some of the footwear students have designed and produced. It was very inspiring and exciting, even if I won’t be applying.
Some of the materials\textiles used in the past and present were displayed on a table for us to play the game of guess what skin its from, we got to touch it and photograph it. It was very interesting. Some of the skins\leathers\furs were very controversial. A fox still had its head, feet and claws attached. There were two shoes dismantled for us to attempt to put them together.
