Wimbledon College of Art, part of the larger University of the Arts, London, is renowned for it's theatre department. With notable alumni such as Sarah Greenwood, Christopher Oram, James Acheson, Phoebe Philo and Lona Mcleish the school has long been noted for its monumental influence in the world of theatrical design.
The industry night, in which those theatre professionals who the students respect and admire are invited to view their work, is often the starting point of many of their careers. It is an opportunity for the graduates to show off the fantastic work they have achieved in their three years of study. This is includes their final costume (this year the product of a collaboration with The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace) and all the research and sketchbook designs that display their growing confidence and extensive talents.
We have a MINIMUM TARGET of £250 but WE STILL NEED TO RAISE OVER £2000 pounds. We are using Crowdfunder to raise some money for some of the drinks and nibbles, art and framing materials as well as catalogues, flyers and advertising, which of course does not come easily. We have so far held numerous bake sales, organised music nights, created handmade items for auctions (https://www.facebook.com/CostumeDesignGetsCrafty?fref=ts) and have offered all the creative skills we possess so as to raise the money. As the technologically advanced generation however we feel it is time to take our mission online into the world of Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook and beyond. By doing this we can reach a wider audience to advertise the degree show and the students work, ideals and personal projects that will generate interest about the individuals themselves.
We hope that you may share our enthusiasm and excitement for this years exhibition which we believe will be better than ever with your help!
Want to know what we're up to as we prepare for our sensational degree show? Follow us on twitter (@thecostumewombles) on tumblr (firstname.lastname@example.org) or email us at email@example.com. We would love to hear from you!
NOTE: all rewards must be collected at the show unless other arrangements are made! With immense gratitude and hope for the future,
The Class of 2013
