York All Saints RC School held an Art & Fashion Show on 25th June. The aim of the event was to showcase the excellent and imaginative work created by the GCSE and A-Level students. Staff, family and friends where among the hundreds of visitors who came to view and admire the beautiful art work and fashion designs.
The fashion students took to the catwalk to display their own creative fashion designs to an appreciative audience. All the outfits were designed and produced by the students themselves. Student Lottie Brown, 18, said, “We had to write our own brief and produce a themed outfit for a client. To then parade my own outfit on the catwalk was quite exhilarating.” Lottie joined All Saints Sixth Form from Millthorpe School because All Saints offered the opportunity to learn the skills and techniques required to create fashion garments to a high standard.
On display in the Art & Photography Galleries were examples of the talented students’ creative and imaginative course work. Each student designed and created their own works of art, from sculptures, paintings, photography and video to conceptual installations. Theo Mason-Wood, who recently starred as Romeo in All Saints’ production of Romeo & Juliet, said about his thought provoking study of ‘The Impossibility of Preservation’, “I was apprehensive of what people might think but people have been kind and entered into debate about my concept.” He added, “I’m proud of what I’ve achieved. It’s great to see my work alongside other artists from the school.”
The excellent work on display continues the strong long-standing reputation All Saints enjoys in the Arts. Portrait Artist Anne Hutchison said, “I posed for a portrait by Sophie Kilmartin. When I saw the painting I was taken aback by how good it was. All the work on display here does her, other artists and the school credit. It is wonderful to see such a high standard of work on display here this evening.”
