Invasion of Creative Talent at Uxbridge College
The best of dance, music, fashion, animation, games design, graphic design, film and art at Uxbridge College was showcased during this year’s Creative Week, dubbed the ‘Invasion Exhibition’.
The annual event brings together students from across the College in a series of exhibitions and shows.
Many of the creative students are going on to study at degree level including at London College of Fashion, and the Universities of Greenwich and Bournemouth.
Events included a fashion show with clothes and accessories designed by the students modelled on the catwalk. The dance show, at Uxbridge College in Hayes, included originally-choreographed ballet, tap, rock and roll, commercial and street dance, as well as performances from the musicals Annie, Chicago and The Lion King.
A range of art works including photography, installation, montage and sculpture were exhibited, and media students were honoured for their work at an awards night where their films were also shown. Creative work by computer games designers, such as animated environments (imaginary worlds) and characters for computer games, was also on show.
Nicola Holmes, Head of Creative Studies at Uxbridge College said: “It’s been an impressive year across all the creative subjects, with students showing an extremely high level of professionalism. We have seen some terrific work this year including some beautiful tailoring and design on the catwalk, inspiring animation from games designers, industry-standard logo design, and some really original mixed-media artworks to name but a few. Congratulations to everyone involved in making this such a success.”
The fashion show was attended by the Mayor of Hillingdon Councillor Catherine Dann and the Mayoress Mrs Rita Kilroy, in one of their first functions since being elected to office earlier this month.
