Fashion students present 'What is Beauty?' exhibition

Year Two BA (Hons) Fashion Communication and Promotion students have recently presented their work as part of a photography exhibition at the University called 'What is Beauty?'.

Year Two BA (Hons) Fashion Communication and Promotion students recently presented their work as part of a photographic exhibition at the University called What is Beauty?

The exhibition was designed to challenge the ideas we have around beauty, particularly in reference to disability, race, age, body shape, self esteem and self acceptance. The students were asked to focus on how diversity can enhance beauty rather than impede it.

The exhibition supported a larger piece of work the students are working on, concerning behaviour change. One group of students said, "It was such a fun project and it has given us an insight into the work expected of us in industry". Senior Lecturer, Sarah Lewington added, "This was a very realistic industry project, as this is an area most Fashion Communication and Promotion graduates work in."

The students were given two weeks to create the whole exhibition. They commented that, This project has really benefited us, as we have experienced the tight deadlines and pressures of creating an exhibition in the real world."
