WELSH national dress has been reinvented by students for a prominent window display.
Fashion and clothing students from Cardiff and Vale college put their own spin on traditional costume for the display in Cardiff's Oxfam boutique on St Mary's Street.
The level three extended diploma students were briefed to come up with a new take on Welsh costume that reflect national heritage and symbolise St David’s Day.
Course co-ordinator Kerry Cameron said: "The students then researched Welsh national dress for their reinterpretation
“All the garments were made from recycled materials to reflect ethical fashion, which links in with Oxfam’s ethos. The students have done really well.”
This is the second year that fashion students have taken over window displays at the Oxfam boutique, following an extremely successful and popular display students designed and set up in 2013.
