Students brought Paisley's history to life through a fashion show.

This project was the culmination of the efforts by Glasgow Kelvin College (GKC) students in creating unique clothing collections inspired by the town's past.

These designs were presented in a special fashion showcase held at Drygate Brewery in Glasgow.

As a joint collaboration between Renfrewshire Council and GKC's fashion department, the collections were created in honour of the Paisley Museum and Heritage Centre.

The centre is currently under a £45million renovation and is set to reopen in 2025.

The collections, featuring outstanding work from GKC NC and HND students, portrayed future fashion trends.

One collection, named Paisley Pastels, portrayed streetwear incorporating superficies inspired by Paisley print, imbued with a gentle pastel colour palette.

Another, World of Colour, found its inspiration in traditional Indian culture - the vivid spectrum and rangoli designs of Diwali specifically.

Tailoring – Paisley Reimagined took architectural aspects of the new Paisley Museum into consideration.

This collection also included bridal and evening wear influenced by the modern sari.

All of this was brought to fruition by second-year HND students.

Additionally, the event lent its support to the charity Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.

Melisa Mudryk, a 14-year-old student from Johnstone High School, claimed victory in the annual Project Runway School event with her creative design.

Sandra Thomson, from GKC, said: "The partnership between Renfrewshire Council and Glasgow Kelvin College has been fantastic: it’s been amazing watching our students embrace the challenge of interpreting this brief.

"The show not only highlighted the talent of our fashion students, but also celebrated the rich cultural heritage of Paisley – which is particularly poignant as the town's museum and heritage centre undergoes a significant transformation."

Some student participants also reflected on the experience.

Aimee Coates, a second-year HND student, remarked: "The fashion show was such a great culmination of all our hard work over the past year and we raised money for a great charity, Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland.

"My final bridal piece was inspired by the Sari and I wanted it to have all the draping and beautiful flow of a traditional Sari, so it was an honour to create a piece that encapsulated that and for it to be the show finisher was the highlight of my night."

Her peer, Fahad Anjum, also praised the event, saying: "It was a great opportunity to participate in the Fashion Show.

"A lot of planning went into it, and it was somewhat stressful – but this motivated us to work hard as a team.

"It was an absolute pleasure to be involved in an event where our creative skills were showcased before an audience.

"It was such an emotional and rewarding experience, I can’t wait for next year."
