Bee inspired- Talk on Bill Gibb by Rachel Singer

I found out that Aberdeen Art Gallery were doing a talk on Bill Gibb the wonderful fashion designer from the 70's only to discover that the Course leader of Fashion & Textiles -Rachel Singer- was presenting it.

The talk explained how the second year students were given a brief to create garments inspired by Bill Gibb, their work was presented along with that of Gibb's -known also for his hidden bee within his garments- in Provost Skene's House.

A fantastic insight into both Bill Gibb and of second year textiles (which I am starting in  late September). 
Cannot wait to get back to the art school and get into the swing of things again.

Right: Two of the fashion and textiles student Gibb inspired garments.
