Students put the 'style' in Christmas
with local window display

The results of a two-week live brief by first-year students can be seen this Christmas in the window of the Ashley Centre in Epsom.

21 Dec 2022

Students on the BA (Hons) Fashion Imaging & Styling course collaborated with the Epsom shopping centre to create work interpreting the festive season through fashion styling and photography.

Their work was inspired by colour themes, seasonal climate, festive paraphernalia, and clothing - from wearing a wrapping paper design, referencing traditional tartans, or joining the ski elite.

“Through working on a ‘live’ project in an industry setting, students gathered knowledge and relevant experiences in their aspired vocation. It also allowed students to exhibit work outside of their coursework format,” said Martin Sparkes, senior lecturer.

“Collaborating with local shops and retail allows us to play an active part in the Epsom community. It will give residents the chance to view and share in the creative journey of our young creatives.”

Jacqui McGeehan, The Ashley Centre’s Manager said:

“The Ashley centre is the heart of the town of Epsom for retail, and it is important that we work closely with the community. So, we are delighted to be able to collaborate with these talented students by giving them the opportunity to showcase their talent, as well as learn more about the retail industry from the shopping centre.”

The window installation will be up until the end of January 2023.
