Last week saw South Thames College students from a variety of courses come together for the end of year charity fashion show. South Thames College partnered with a local South London charity, Wandsworth Oasis, who are celebrating 30 years of HIV support and prevention through its 10 South London charity shops and fundraising events.
The event showcased the type of sustainable fashion that can be re-used and upcycled, a very topical subject with retail brands continuously being scrutinised for fast fashion and the effect this has on the environment.
It was a truly collaborative effort as students from a range of courses were involved in the show, gaining invaluable first-hand experience of event production.
The Art & Design students worked on style redesign of the clothes which were exhibited on the night with Beauty & Media Make up students styling the models. Construction students built the stage and the TV & Film Production students filmed throughout the event.
Please join us for a fantastic evening of fashion and networking as we present the Wandsworth Oasis Charity Fashion Show 2019.
This year, Wandsworth Oasis is celebrating 30 years of HIV support and prevention work through its 10 south London charity shops and fundraising events and we are delighted to partner with them to bring a showcase of the type of sustainable fashion that can be reused and upcycled - and in turn creating less landfill - in their charity stores.
On Thursday 16th May, six BTEC Level 3 Health & Social Care students visited Wimbledon Ambulance Station accompanied by college Senior Pastoral Tutor, Dev Kanagasundaram and his former colleague Chris Hutchinson, who had previously worked as a Paramedic in the London Ambulance Service for 28 years.
The students were given talks by ex and current London Ambulance Service (LAS) staff about their roles, pathways into the LAS, day-to-day duties and challenges they may face, etc. There were questions and answers throughout their tour including in the back of an ambulance with Clinical Team Manager, Rob Morgan.
