Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

FASH­ION stu­dents have fused mod­ern de­signs with the town’s weav­ing her­itage for their end of year show.

The stu­dents at Macclesfield Col­lege took in­spi­ra­tion from the great weav­ing looms at Par­adise Mill to come up with their fab­u­lous de­signs, which will be show­cased at Charles Roe House on June 24.

The show co­in­cides with the 300th an­niver­sary of Charles Roe’s birth­day, as well as the 35th an­niver­sary of Ian Curtis’ death.

An­gela Devoti, fash­ion course leader at the col­lege, said: “I am de­lighted to show­case our end of year fash­ion show at Charles Roe House this June. The show will be a real com­ing to­gether of our town’s in­cred­i­ble and unique her­itage with the fu­ture cre­atives, and a cel­e­bra­tion of crafts­man­ship, cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion.

“I would also like to thank Julie Hamer of In­cu­ba­tion Arts for all her sup­port and Martin O’Neill.”

The stu­dents’ care­fully con­structed de­signs will be shar­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion space which cur­rently houses Martin O’Neill’s

. Joy Di­vi­sion photography ex­hi­bi­tion, which has been or­gan­ised by In­cu­ba­tion Arts.
