LJMU fashion students rev up Jaguar show

12 September 2012

Liverpool School of Art and Design's Fashion department recently delivered a sleek and sexy fashion show at Hatfields Jaguar in Liverpool to help the company celebrate the opening of its new Land Rover dealership and rededication of its Jaguar showroom.

Guests enjoyed a heady mix of high-end fashion, cocktails and canapés. The fashion show ran in two halves, the first showcasing fashions from LJMU graduates and second year students, and the second half showcasing fashions from online retailer, House of Fraser.co.uk

As part of the event, the team produced a static exhibition of current student and graduate work which sat alongside the latest Jaguar cars.

John Plaistow, General Manager at Hatfields said:

"We were really impressed with the dedication and commitment the team put in to getting it right. They conducted themselves really professionally and our customers thoroughly enjoyed the show. It was good to see the youth of Liverpool getting involved and doing such a good job."

Carol Ryder, Senior Lecturer in Fashion Design and organiser of the fashion show said:

"The fashion show was a perfect accompaniment to the relaunch of Hatfields' Jaguar showroom and the new dealership. High-end fashion is as aspirational as owning a Jag and our pieces really stood out next to these beautiful cars. Students, graduates and staff all helped out to make this a fantastic experience for all involved."

Liverpool School of Art and Design runs a three year BA Fashion course at the Art and Design Academy.
