The grand opening is set for April 30th at the Fusion Centre on the Digbeth High Street, in the heart of Birmingham. The event starts at 12pm, there'll be all sorts on offer, including:
• An array of unique designs
• Meet the students and see their creations.

The boutique was set up as a forum for students to sell the goods they make throughout the year, giving them suitable experience in the business and retail side of the fashion industry. The boutique will also sell the supplies that the students require for the fashion courses at the college. It will be open daily to the public and any of the goods in the shop can be ordered in any size and in a selection of colours.
The assistant director of fashion at South & City, Eileen Simons said - "I am thrilled with the direction that the college is taking in supporting new inspirational entrepreneurs in Birmingham. As we are based in the heart of the creative quarter of the city our students are constantly exposed [to] the artistic elements of what Birmingham has to offer. This is a great opportunity for our students to expand their skills and to promote themselves in the industry."
