Brooke Ferrison at Graduate Fashion Week

Tattoos and body art were the inspiration behind University of Northampton student Brooke Ferrison’s print designs for this year’s Graduate Fashion Week.

The 21-year old BA (Hons) Textiles for Fashion student has found that creating her final year project has peaked her interest in a career in print design after she graduates. She has been working with silk, suede and wool and has produced a contemporary and minimalist collection with flowing garments, such as maxi shirts and culottes.

She said: “It’s been a learning curve going from the 2D design stage to a 3D garment and in the six months I have been working on my collections, there have been many changes and alterations to my designs.

“I decided on a career in the fashion industry and completed an Art Foundation course before coming to the University of Northampton. I liked that we could sample the textiles and footwear pathways, as well as fashion and it helped me decide what suited me the most. I have now decided that I want to go into textiles and print designing when I graduate.”

Brooke’s work will be featured along with other students from a variety of courses from the School of The Arts at this year’s Degree Show. This will be running from Saturday 11 to Sunday 19 June at the University’s Avenue Campus.
