Art, design and fashion students showcase final major projects
The hard work, sleepless nights and anticipation will be a thing of the past when Southampton Solent University students showcase their final major projects at the annual summer degree shows on Friday 9 June.
From 9-15 June, as the 2016/17 academic year draws to an end, students graduating from Solent’s School of Art, Design and Fashion will have their work on display for staff, fellow students and the general public to view.
Peter Lloyd, Director of Solent’s School of Art, Design and Fashion will be hosting the event: “This showcase represents the culmination of three hard years of study. It offers the chance for Solent to recognise that achievement, friends and family to share it, and for local employers to talent spot.
“The summer shows are a great opportunity for the general public to get an insight into what goes on in the University and how it might be a possible vehicle for their ambitions and aspirations. There is also the opportunity to buy the work of our graduating artists and designers, as well as helping to kick-start a career, you might bag yourself an investment for future!”
This year will be the second year the degree shows have been on display in Solent’s new building, The Spark. Work will also be on display in the University’s art and design studios, Below Bar.

This year, the catwalk will feature 12 third-year BA (Hons) Fashion students, showing six collection pieces each.
