Clothing brand Weird Fish has donated a mixture of woven and jersey fabric off cuts from its SS19 colour palette along with a variety of trims including zips and tapes, to Falmouth University’s Fashion Design and Textile Design students to use in their projects.
Students were also provided with offcuts of Weird Fish’s unique prints and Macaroni fabrics.
John Boddy, head of fashion design and textile design at Falmouth University, commented: “We are so grateful to Weird Fish for their kind donation of offcuts, as we have a number of students each year whose practice is centered on sustainability and upcycling, so these will certainly be put to good use.”
John Stockton, managing director at Weird Fish, said: “We’re more than happy to give back to the community we live and work in and are pleased with this collaborative effort to support the students’ creations. We look forward to seeing what they design from the offcuts as they are the designers of our future.”
The Weird Fish Falmouth store is the third store for the brand to open in Cornwall, following success in Newquay and Truro. The store is located at 47 Church Street in Falmouth.
Weird Fish boasts 15 physical stores across the country and all items are also available to buy online from www.weirdfish.co.uk.
