AN exciting exhibition and a fun-packed fashion show are about to take place at Heriot-Watt University to showcase the graduate students' hard work.

Catwalk creations from some of the most dynamic young designers in the country will be showcased over the weekend.

Previous fashion shows from the highly coveted School of Textiles have taken place in the capital.

But this year the stylish students are bringing their designs back to where they were made - in Galashiels.

Bruce Munro Roberts, director of studies and fashion technology, said: “This year we decided to bring the showcase back onto the campus to help the audience connect with the process behind all our students’ collections.

“The audience will be able to see the combination of traditional and state-of-the-art design technology that our students use to transform their inspiration and concepts into wearable pieces.

“By changing the event to a salon format, we’re bringing the audience much closer to collections than ever before.”

Last year more than 100 graduates showcased their weird and wonderful work.

And just as many designers of the future will be presenting their pieces this year.

For a glimpse of the stunning outfits the exhibition takes place on Friday, May 26 from 4pm to 9pm and the following day from 2pm to 9pm at Heriot-Watt University School of Textiles and Design at Netherdale.

The exhibition will also run throughout next week (Monday to Thursday) from 10am to 4pm.

The salon fashion show takes place from 5.30pm and 7.30pm on both Friday and Saturday.

And there is an additional matinee show on Saturday at 3.30pm.

Tickets for the exhibition cost £5 plus booking fee and entry to the fashion show is also £5.
