Students at Coleg Gwent’s Crosskeys campus have created a Poppy dress to help raise money for this year’s Poppy Appeal.
The creative art and design students also artistically updated the traditional Royal British Legion poppy symbol by creating versions using different colours, fabrics and designs.
The dress was unveiled at an event at the college last month by special guest Ron Jones – a survivor of Auschwitz.
Natalie Thomas, Course Leader UAL art and design and fashion and textiles lecturer at Crosskeys campus, said: “It’s great to give our students a chance to honour Remembrance Day in their own creative way using methods they’re learning in the classroom.”
The dress has since been displayed at several locations across south Wales, including Cardiff’s St David’s Hall.
