Old Jaguar racing clothes donated to Coventry students for charity project

Coventry Editorial 13th Feb, 2024   0

COVENTRY fashion students have received outdated team kit from the Jaguar TCS Racing to give the clothing a second life.

In total, 300 pieces of outdated kit have been donated to Coventry University’s fashion department to help the students as part of their degree.

First-year university students will be using the donated kit to create new garments.

The finished clothes will be donated to charities across the West Midlands.

The donation also aims to prevent discarded clothing from going to landfill sites.

Coventry University’s assistant professor in the School of Art and Design, Ena Brown, said the donation was a fantastic opportunity and she couldn’t wait to see what her students created.
