As part of this year's Fashion City York events, students studying BA (Hons) Fashion Design and Production at York College had a wonderful opportunity to meet internationally renowned fashion designer Paul Costelloe when he visited Browns department store in York.

Paul Costelloe took time to show the students his new spring/summer designs, sharing his ideas and inspirations for his new collection. He explained that his pieces are crafted using the finest premium fabrics, underpinning his values and philosophies of quality, youthfulness, beautiful tailoring and acute attention to detail. Drawing inspiration from the traditions of fine British tailoring, with beautiful cuts and refined details at the core of each of his collections, his traditional tailoring is re-interpreted into contemporary pieces that retain a sense of relaxed British elegance.
York College fashion tutor Marie Neal-Smith said: “Meeting an international fashion designer with such an established brand is a fantastic opportunity for degree level fashion students. The Fashion City York event provides a unique fashion platform for the city and supports the young fashion designers of the future, which is very relevant for our students as they progress into the fashion industry.”
