The Fashion week will involve something for each creative mind.  From the workshops which will include French Knitting, Contemporary Art and Design, T-Shirt Customisation and Jewellery Making; to the lectures on Edwardian Fashion, Careers in Fashion, and Digital Textiles there is not a second to be missed.
