Twelve of our final year BA (Hons) Costume Design and Making students have recently exhibited their work at this year's spring Textile Forum.

Textile Forum is London's most exclusive biannual luxury fashion fabric show for designers, presenting stock and forward order fabrics over two floors at its central London venue, One Marylebone from 9 – 10 March 2016.

Student Sophie Bowyer told us: "The concept of my project was based on the silhouettes and fashion around in 1840 when the story, Sweeny Todd, was originally written. I then used modern day fabrics to give the costumes a more contemporary style to them.

"For my make I created the character Mrs Lovett before she became wealthy with her pies in the first act of the story. I focused on the breaking down of the costume to give an poor, aged look about the clothes To link with my contemporary style I used fabrics such as denim and crushed satin."

Fellow student Eleanor Barlow told us: "It's nice that people at the Textile Forum were able to see our work, we've put so much effort into everything we do. It is rewarding for us that the public are able to see all of this."
