Best foot forward
Three students at The Cass secured fashion internships when The Anarchy studio at our School of Design pitched to Underground Shoes for their new autumn/winter fashion textiles and accessories collection.
Three of the collections presented by students were invited to return for second viewing, and Underground are backing a fashion award for The Cass students. The collection will be launching soon at Underground Shoes' London fields creative hub studio.
Talking about the success, Charlotte Gorse studio leader and Head of the School of design said,
"It was brilliant to secure three cutting-edge fashion internships with Underground and a new Cass fashion award in the same week. Our students really enjoyed working on the project, finding the company's energy, drive and creative naughtiness a real 'eye-opener'. We're excited to know that three more students will also be continuing to develop their designs for the company's future viewing and I look forward to continuing our 'fearless' design approach together in the future."
Underground was born of a love for renegade style and rock 'n' roll. They make authentic, British, rock 'n' roll-inspired shoes.
