Westwood Language School


The school is soon to receive a Super School Status and has specialist status as a Language College in recognition of its outstanding teaching and results, as well as work with other schools and the community.

FashionCapital has now hosted two of the seminars with year 9 students and has been highly impressed with the calibre of work to date. Greatly aided by Rachel Ford herself, a practising top end Ladieswear designer, the students are working on an evening wear garment ready for a school fashion event on 3rd July.

FashionCapital is explaining how the fashion industry works and contributing to the development of the corseted evening wear items with the patterns now well under way.
