Pictured here is Brighton FashionLab student Calypso Cragg, aged 13, with October’s edition of King Kong magazine. Some of our students designs were chosen to be featured in the photoshoot by Rottingdean Bazaar, photographed by Annie Collinge and modelled by Baby Uli. The work has caught the eye of everyone, including The British Fashion Council. We’re all so proud!
