2ND YEAR KNIT PROJECT AND EXHIBITION - GERMANY


Schoeller  Suben (Austermann)

Student Project for Cologne fair �Handarbeit�

22/23/24th March 2013

�Austermann� is the Hand Knitting Yarn section of the Internationnaly renowned German �SchoellerSussen GmbH� yarn spinning company and they exhibit annually at the International trade show �Handarbeit� in Cologne, Germany.
 
This year, in conjunction with the introduction of an Irish Tweed yarn into their range, Austermann invited our students to design and make a collection of garments illustrating the creative usage of their various yarns.

This was an elective project and a selection of 2ndyear Fashion students, working in teams, designed and produced six pieces for display. The pieces were made with a combination of hand knitting & machine knitting techniques, using a selection of yarns from the �Austermann� hand knitting range.

The subsequent photo shoot was student led, with the students choosing models, styling hair and makeup.

The full collection of six pieces were on exhibit on the �Schoeller, Austermann� stand at the Handarbeit fair in Cologne, Germany on March 22/23/24th 2013.
