It might have been a long time ago or even a few months ago for some, but we all remember what it was like to be a student. And as a fashion student, the experience can be an extremely difficult one, purchasing swathes of your own expensive fabrics and sourcing tools in order to build your fashion portfolio. Luckily, Alexander McQueen have seen the stress of this situation and have launched their second round of fabric donations.
First introduced in February last year, the scheme supports those who are studying fashion at universities, college and community education projects throughout the UK. Using fabrics from leftover production cycles and unused samples, McQueen are offering out all types of materials, ranging from womenswear taffetas to menswear tailoring cloths.
