Millinery Magic

Year 11 pupils took part in Millinery Magic – our annual fashion show, designed as an enterprise activity. Pupils worked in teams as the managers of a business company. The purpose ofthe activity is for pupils to gain an understanding and appreciation of how businesses have to work within a competitive and collaborative market. As the title suggests the chosen business revolves around the fashion industry and transforming existing hats and recycled materials into more creative, attractive and fashionable headgear. As well as designing their hats, teams had to write a business plan and a finance plan and meet with a business manager to talk through their proposal. The day culminated with a fashion parade to promote their own company’s products.
