The following work, by students from the BA (Hons) Fashion Design programme, is the result of three and in most cases four years of study. Some of these students practised their skills at a range of exciting internships both nationally and internationally. It has been both a great privilege and a joy to work with such an enthusiastic, generous and responsive group of young designers and to watch as they have developed throughout their time at the University of Leeds. The Fashion Design staff would like to express their warm wishes for their future success and congratulate the 2016 cohort for their individual achievements. We look forward to including them in the extensive University of Leeds alumni and hope that they will return to Leeds to pass on their future knowledge.
Special thanks to the creative team at Sassoon Salon, Leeds, for help with the photo-shoot for the brochure. Many thanks go to all the companies and associations that offer continued support to our students.
