In April 2010 KWMC supported a group of young women aged 16- 20 to stage a fashion and music event: “Fashionate – A Knowle West Side Story”.

Over a four-month period, the group  learned technical skills including music-making, fashion photography, stage design, event planning, promotion, branding and recruitment. Together they  created a modern retelling of  the classic Shakespearean love story of Romeo & Juliet, where rival groups – with very different styles – were united in a visual spectacle.

The catwalk showcased clothing from national retailers and independent boutiques, and there were performances from Bristol-based DJs and dancers. The overall aim of the Fashionate project was to encourage and equip young women to become involved in the creative industries.
