Students put their best foot forward in fashion degree show



Students from Heriot-Watt University's world-famous School of Textile and Design showcased their degree collections, in Galashiels last week. 

The theme of this year's show was #Transform18 - with models taking to the runway – to showcase designs to an audience of VIPs and fashion industry professionals.  

Additional shows were put on for the public over the weekend, as part of the week-long exhibition, and this year proved to be a record sell-out. 

Professor Fiona Waldron, Head of School, said: “This year's degree show was a great success with our talented students' designs on display for everyone to see.

“The show was a sell out and attended by industry figures who were impressed with the standard of our students work.

“A huge thanks to the organisers and we're already gearing up for next year's show.”

Currently, fashion supports around 797,000 jobs domestically, contributing to £26 billion to the economy.
