COUTURE is a charity fashion show involving a team of 18 students from both the French and International streams, led by Art Director, Isabelle Bezançon, and Event and Sponsor Manager, Katherine Page from Year 13. This long term, creative project has given students the opportunity to develop their skills in different aspects of event, media and talent management as well as broaden the artistic horizons of young individuals. The hard work of all involved will result in an entertaining, all-inclusive show to be enjoyed by all in attendance.
This year’s theme is the ROARING TWENTIES, whereby garments will be inspired by the glamour and vivacity of the 1920s. Supported by high-end fashion brands including La Foundation Hermés and Emmanuel F, the night will showcase collections from young, distinctive designers, a garment collection from Redress, as well as Couture’s Les Trophées de la Mode, a wearable dress competition whereby students compete for the most innovative, striking design made only from recycled materials.
The evening is in support of environmental NGO Redress – a two-year long partner, whom we work with towards our mutual goal of reducing waste in the fashion industry. Redress is incorporated in every step of the Couture journey; last November, we joined Redress in their Get Redressed x Miele Clothing Drive 2017. The organisation collected in total 4, 5 tons of clothes, shoes and accessories! In December, we visited Redress’ Workshop and this March, Redress will also be partaking in COUTURE 2018, showcasing some of their innovational, sustainable designs.
