Designing Your Own Prom Dress

In this Teachers TV video, secondary design and technology students with a passion for fashion, textiles and design make their own prom dresses as part of a vocational project at Key Stage Four. Helped by award-winning fashion designer, Seema Izaiah, the Year Eleven students from Holywells High School in Ipswich are given a unique insight into the fashion industry, learning about technical drawing and how to develop their designs.

The dress designs are then sent to Seema's workshop in Hassan, India, and the students have the chance to see how they are being made when they make a video call to the workshop.
