Two students visit the company's Paris headquarters.
15 Aug 2013
Two students from Print and Textile courses at the Faculty of Arts, have been sponsored by luxury fashion brand Hermés for their final collections.
Print student Charlie Hetheridge and Weave student Sophia Fenlon, were two of only six UK undergraduates selected from colleges across the UK to make the trip to Hermés headquarters in Paris with a view to sponsorship and future employment.
The trip was organised by the company in partnership with Arts Thread, which aims to promote student portfolios to a global audience.
The visit provided some valuable insights, and included an interview with the head designer and two days viewing the Hermés design archive and fabric production process.
