Canvas For Creativity - Wearable Art Showcase

Following the success of the Stroud High Fashion Show Competition for students to design a piece of wearable art to be shown on the catwalk at the SHS fashion show in April, three students accompanied Mrs Lazenbury to Gloucester Cathedral on Friday 14 June to take part in the 2019 Wearable Art Competition.

Year 7 designers Sophie and Delara had teamed up to produce the outfits based on bees and honeycomb. Their entry was a team effort with designers and makers including Eleanor, Lily and Annabel , as well as Sophie and Delara themselves.


Year 9 designer and maker India was inspired by peacocks when making her elegant evening gown with embroidery, feathers and beading.


Also attending were our models Florence and Beth who showcased work from other local designers both on the catwalk and to welcome in visitors.


Mrs Lazenbury, textiles teacher and head of Design and Technology, modelled a piece designed and made by her Daughter Tabby Lazenbury who is currently studying Textiles at NTU.

The Cathedral was filled with eager spectators who were treated to a wonderful display of creativity in the form of fashion from SGS college featuring SHS alumni Amelia as well as incredible bodypainting and wearable art. It was a spectacular venue and experience for all entrants and spectators who all had the opportunity to see incredible designing and making in this spectacular setting.
