Working with Fashion student Anna Hillier, Year 9 pupils from Cardiff West Community High School designed and made their own bomber jackets. The project started with a visit to USW, Atrium Campus on 1st November and concluded with a fashion shoot at Atrium on 22nd February. The girls gave up 2 hours of their own time and 1 hour of lesson time to take part in the project, which mainly took place at school.
Feedback from the girls, of those who completed the feedback 80% had not visited a university before, 20% are now considering university as a result of the visit. Other comments included:
“I have enjoyed it here”
“I thought it was different to other places”
“It was open and friendly”
First Campus is planning to run another Fashion project later in this academic year.
