Plymouth College of Art students in the West End shops

Photography and fashion students from Plymouth College of Art will create festive window displays in the city’s West End for the run up to Christmas and New Year.

Students were given a brief and asked to work in teams to develop their ideas which were then presented to a panel from the City Centre Company.

Ellie Phillips, Rob Tarasek, Carly Fowler and Amanda Morton taken on the first shop to get a makeover Sienna, on Cornwall Street.

Ellie said: “A big influence on our display has been 1950s glamour, giving a really girly feminine feel. It’s been great to be able to work with students in other practices and the window is most definitely a joint collaboration of photography and fashion.

“It’s been a great experience to work on a live brief making sure we met the client’s needs and meeting our deadline successfully.

The project is part of an on-going programme of creative projects for the West End, aimed at demonstrating the potential of working with artists and creative thinkers across the West End.
