BE SEEN and be safe say Rotherham College of Arts and Technology fashion students who have designed a range of high-visibility clothing.

Eighteen youngsters were tasked with creating a collection of garments, to help pedestrians avoid accidents on the roads, as part of their BTEC course.

Showcasing their products on a market stall in Rotherham town centre, the students used reflective screen paints, tape and sprays to create their designs.

Katrina Mcalister, tutor, said: “The project has encouraged them to work within the brief and the colour scheme has allowed the students to be creative and push themselves to generate individual styles complemented by their accessories. The students’ work looks fantastic as a collection.”

The students worked to promote and sell the clothes and accessories, with the profits going towards a trip to Madrid and their final major fashion show.

They have another stall at the town’s craft market on Wednesday, November 28.
