Students at Glasgow School of Art are preparing to say goodbye to the Vic Bar which closes, with adjacent Newbery Tower, in June.
Part of the campus in Renfrew Street, the Victoria cafe bar is where art and music collide and produce great things.
Third year students will host the last ever annual Fashion Show in the Vic on Tuesday 8 and Wednesday 9 March. Textile design students who are based at Newbery, which is to be demolished, will create garments and the fabrics, using the wealth of information from the School’s archives.
Some of the unique pieces will be sold afterwards. Tickets are £7 per adults £5 concession and the funds raised are expected to enable the final year students to take their degree collection to London next year for the New Designers’ graduate event.
Alongside the show, an exhibition of work from first year fashion and textiles students will feature in the School’s Atrium Gallery from Tuesday 8 to Sunday 13 March.
The various parts of the school turned out of their present accommodation will re-locate in Skypark. But at the time of writing, the Vic’s new home had not been confirmed though there are high hopes it will be on Sauchiehall Street, near the School of Art.
Famous textile students include: Timorous Beasties, Jonathon Saunders, Louise Grey and Bebaroque.
