FASHION students at Craven College are exhibiting their work from tomorrow to May 31 at Holy Trinity Church in Skipton.

This year the students will present fashion, inspired by stories in the stained glass windows of Holy Trinity Church.

They have also completed a costume collection inspired by the 400-year-old dress of the Countess of Roxburgh, Jean Kerr, who was a spy for Charles I.

The dress was recently found, amazingly well preserved, buried under silt off the coast of Holland, where it had sunk after a shipwreck in 1642.

Joan Murray, the fashion tutor, says her students have benefitted from researching the garments of the different historic periods, making them relevant to their own developing and contemporary design practice as they prepare for work in the fashion industry.

There will be a special event at 1pm on Friday, May 19, when the students will lead discussions about their creative work.

Entry is free.
