Elliot is off to London College of Fashion

Elliot is off to London College of Fashion

25/07/2018

Eighteen-year-old Elliot Prince, from Carlton, has secured a place at world-renowned London College of Fashion, after completing his Level 3 Fashion Design course at Nottingham College. He's also encouraging other male students to consider fashion design as a career.



Elliot will be studying on the prestigious Cordwainers footwear: product design and innovation course.

Speaking about his time at Nottingham College on a fashion design course, Elliot said: “I’d one hundred percent recommend the course, and I’ve already mentioned it to people! Not a lot of lads do fashion design, but it’s definitely something they can do.

“I’d encourage other lads by saying that if you like clothes then you’ll love it when you can make your own!

“I actually feel pretty confident about going to study in London because the skills I’ve learnt at Nottingham College have been pretty amazing, from pattern cutting and sewing machine skills to illustration.”

Elliot showcased his final design pieces at the College's end of year catwalk fashion shows in June. He said: “For my two final outfits, I created my own brief based on something I’d like to find out more about. My design inspiration came from an exhibition I saw at the Tate in London. It was called Red star over Russia and so it’s about the military and communism.



"The title of my work is ‘Suspect Revolution’ and it’s based on what’s been happening over the last two years - on events worldwide, and the fact that some people are suspicious of what’s going on in the world. So, my designs are a bit like trying to disguise yourself in everyday life, the idea of not being a suspect. There is also a military influence, for example in the holster and pouch design.”
