About Dressed in the A-Z: Fashion Show

As part of this year's Festival of Museums, Fashion and Textile Diploma students from Edinburgh College have been inspired by the Edinburgh Alphabet collection for their final major project garments. The process of exploring, experimenting, applying and realising art and design ideas has been integral to the work produced.

With such a diverse, rich and varied range of objects to explore, the city's heritage is a creative's treasure trove. Come and watch this special fashion show of their work.

No need to book, just drop in.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Dressed in the A-Z: Fashion Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
