Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

FASH­ION stu­dents at Mac­cles­field Col­lege have cel­e­brated the 300th an­niver­sary of Charles Roe’s birth­day.

Stu­dents also marked the 35th an­niver­sary of the death of Joy Di­vi­sion singer Ian Curtis by pre­sent­ing their fash­ion show in Martin O’Neill’s Joy Di­vi­sion pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tion space in­side Charles Roe House.

Year Two fash­ion stu­dent, Amy Ed­wards, said: “The show was in­cred­i­ble, it couldn’t have been any more suc­cess­ful.

“The mu­sic and the lo­ca­tion was per­fect! I have thor­oughly en­joyed my time com­plet­ing my Level 3 Ex­tended Diploma in Fash­ion and by show­cas­ing my work in Charles Roe House. This gave me the op­por­tu­nity to show that all my hard work over the past two years has paid off.”

Another Year Two fash­ion stu­dent, Abbey Mills, said: “The show al­lowed me to show off my work from my fi­nal year and it was a happy and ex­cit­ing event, but also sad as my time at col­lege has come to an end.

“I am look­ing for­ward to start­ing my de­gree course in Lon­don.”

Clare Pea­cock, also a stu­dent in Year Two, said: “The fash­ion show was amaz­ing. Just look­ing at our out­fits come to life on the cat­walk was so emo­tional.”

Course leader An­gela Devoti was full of praise, for the stu­dents.

She said: “The fash­ion show was an ex­tra­or­di­nary ex­pe­ri­ence, show­cas­ing all the stu­dents hard work and cre­ativ­ity in­side Charles Roe’s House was a real mo­ment for ev­ery­one.

“This year I have been work­ing closely with Julie Hamer of In­cu­ba­tion arts.

“I am fully sup­port­ive of all her amaz­ing work in turn­ing Charles Roe House into an arts and cul­tural cen­tre with the aim of pro­mot­ing cre­ativ­ity and to bring a per­ma­nent Joy Di­vi­sion ex­hi­bi­tion space to the house.

“She has worked tire­lessly to get things mov­ing and I was so happy to hear In­cu­ba­tion Arts were awarded £25,000 from Cheshire East to de­velop their bid to the Her­itage Lottery Fund.”

Last month marked the 35th an­niver­sary of Ian Curtis pass­ing and a pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion by Martin O’Neill was ex­hib­ited at Charles Roe House as part of tributes.

Julie Hamer, of In­cu­ba­tion Arts, said: “The tal­ent from the stu­dents at the Mac­cles­field Col­lege End of Year Fash­ion Show was of an ex­cep­tional qual­ity and a joy to watch.

“In­cu­ba­tion Arts were proud to be able to host the end of year show.”
