Media students film documentary for pilot eco project

TV and Film students from Wiltshire College & University Centre are pleased to be documenting a pilot project looking at the environmental impact of clothing.

The Level 3 students from the Chippenham campus attended the eco fashion show to mark the launch of Re:Fashion My Town earlier this month and capture local models on the catwalk, showcasing upcycled second-hand clothes and eco fashion.

Media lecturer Nicola Dew said: “It’s always valuable for students to work in a real environment – even more so with a live audience!

“The Re:Fashion Chippenham project is interesting because it is making us question our everyday habits.

“We are looking forward to working on a bigger fashion show in April.”

The event, which took place at Chippenham library, coincided with London Fashion week and saw more than 100 people attended the show.

Chippenham has been chosen as the pilot town for the campaign which aims to raise awareness of the environmental and human cost of fashion, change perceptions and actions on climate change and sustainable living.

It also focusses on promoting recycling, enabling people to gain skills in altering and repairing clothes as well as providing an outlet for the customisation of pre-loved clothing and raising the profile of charity and vintage shops, tailors and repairers.
