Students from Penryn College got dressed up to show off their own fashion designs at a recent photo shoot.

The year 10 textile technology students designed the clothes as part of a project run in conjunction with Nomads Clothing.

Once they had finished their creation, they took them to Trebah Gardens for a fashion shoot, and Nomads’ director Vicky Jackson chose the top three designs.

Emily Simmons’ outfit was named the Most Commercially Viable Product to Emily Simmons, with Janna Richardson taking second place, and Elleanor Moore in third.

Vicky said: “It’s a brilliant opportunity for the students to turn a project into something more real.”

Lorraine Aonso, textile technology subject leader, said: “This gives them a real experience, a taster of how tight deadlines are in the industry. They have about six weeks, which gives them a good look at the profession they will possibly be entering.”
