    Students visit Victoria and Albert Museum

    Pupils at West Hatch High School, Chigwell, visited the Alexander McQueen exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

    The students also attended a workshop with renowned curator and lecturer Juliana Sissons.

    The exhibition was an extravagant biography of the life of the London-born designer who was widely acclaimed as a creative genius.

    Pupils watched a presentation about the designer and his work then had visited the exhibition for inspiration.

    Students then went back to the workshop and produced garments using a variety of paper and fabric. The final designs are clearly influenced by Alexander McQueen.

    Pupils also had fun trying them on while suggesting occasions when they could wear them. They will use the research collected to help develop original ideas in their coursework.
