One of garments produced by school pupils during the Fashion Fun courses. 

School pupils from throughout Fife have been given an insight into the world of fashion careers thanks to fun workshops recently run by Fife College.   

Pupils were invited to the College’s fashion department to let their creative imaginations run wild, making amazing outfits and accessories, all from paper.

S3-S6 pupils from Glenrothes High School and Woodmill High School, Dunfermline had the opportunity to create garment ideas by manipulating recycled materials. 

Working in teams, the pupils produced tubes, frills and roses which they then used to create their bodice, skirt or dress designs on the mannequins. 

The courses took place between last October and this January.  Susan Finlay, Fashion Lecturer, said: 

“Our Fashion Fun courses have proved a big hit with pupils over the last few months offering an insight into what a career in fashion may involve.  All the pupils really enjoyed participating in the course and I’m sure many will have been inspired to consider applying to one of our fashion courses or pursuing a career in fashion in the future.”

The Fashion Fun courses are an example of the College’s successful School College Partnership in action. 

Working in partnership with every high school in Fife, Fife College offer a vocational, work-based experience to complement pupils’ academic studies at school.  This allows pupils to study a college course as part of their timetable while they are still at school.
