CHRISTMAS COMES TO BROOK TAVERNER BEVERLEYWed 11th December 2019
Celebratory cheer has arrived in Beverley as we approach Brook Taverner’s first Christmas as a Beverley resident. Our store is now primed and decorated for the festive season and we would love to welcome you with the same Brook Taverner cheer that we have become known for throughout our time here.
Whether it be to peruse our array of Christmas gifts (with products available to suit all price ranges), to gear up for the abundance of Christmas themed parties, events and occasions that seem to occupy the majority of December, or simply to buy that Christmas day outfit to make it one to remember, our product range truly does cater to all.
For most, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year and for us, it’s a great moment to take a step back and reflect on a fantastic 2019, and a chance to appreciate the new friendships we’ve formed - especially through our Beverley store opening and the people we have got to meet in this stunning market town.
One of our newer friends perhaps, is Bishop Burton College located just 10 minutes away from the town centre on York Road. This friendship has allowed us to support the development of the Fashion Design Courses towards leading Fashion design as well as the development of their students.
Phionna Fitzgerald, Fashion HE Programme Leader stated that, “working on this live project with Brook Taverner has given the students opportunities to develop their fashion industry specific skills and knowledge. Through design briefs, a visit to Abraham Moon & Sons textile mill and the exciting finale to the project, showcasing their work on the catwalk.” She went on to add that “this experience is priceless for anyone preparing to enter the industry.”
The Degree studies in Fashion - FdA Fashion Design & Clothing and BA (top up) Fashion Design & Manufacture at Bishop Burton College - have been developed to prepare graduates to enter the diverse and exciting fashion Industry. Students gain a holistic view of the industry through studying concepts focussed on studio practice and design exploration with a particular focus on realisation, entrepreneurial skills, creative pattern-cutting and garment construction, whilst embedding these skills in competitions, live briefs, work placements and small business development.
It’s fantastic to see local Beverley organisations benefiting the community and we’re excited to see the benefits of the program come to fruition.
