Northbrook Fashion students paid tribute to their late Course Leader with an intimate charity catwalk show in Brighton.
BA (Hons) Fashion Design students organised a boutique catwalk show to raise money in memory of Simon Seivewright, who passed away last September following a battle with cancer.
The show, which was held at the Phoenix Gallery on 20
June, raised over £1,200 for the Martlets Hospice and the Brain Tumour Charity, and offered the students a chance to present their final designs for a second time, following a successful catwalk show at Graduate Fashion Week.
During the evening, Northbrook student Sarah Barron was nominated by her fellow students and staff to be the first ever recipient of the Simon Seivewright Award for Creative Excellence, which was presented by Simon’s parents, Max and Diane.
Acting Course Leader Theresa Parker said, “Congratulations to all the students on the success of the event which was conceived, created and managed by the third year graduates, collaborating with students from Theatre, Music and Fashion Media & Promotion. This is an amazing achievement and a testament to their hard work and professionalism. I and the rest of the staff are immensely proud of them.”
