The  Fashion  Department  have  just  returned  from  another  very  successful  London  Trip. It  was a  very  busy  time  for  all  involved  as  4 years  were  purchasing  fabric  for  their  final collections, 3rd  years  were  attending  interviews  for  their  upcoming  work  placements  and  purchasing fabric for  their  2  piece statements  and  2nd  years  were  purchasing  fabric  for  various  projects, conducting  a  market  research  project  and  attending  a  variety  of  exhibitions, particularly  the Robert  Raushenberg  exhibition  in  the  Tate  Modern. Everyone  is inspired and  invigorated  from the  trip  and  looking  forward  to  getting  started  on  final  year  projects.
