UNIQUE urban clothing brand Superdry paid a visit to a Fairford school, to work with A-Level textiles students.
The Cheltenham-based company, which has stores all across the UK and the world, visited Farmor's School after a charity linked the two together.
Inspiring the Future is a charity which links schools and businesses together. It arranged for Superdry to visit the school for the day last week.
"It was the most fantastic morning and we were delighted that the Superdry staff spent time with our design students," said Carole Gray from Farmor's School. "It was invaluable and very exciting for them to experience and listen and ask questions about their motivations, creativity and different routes into the world of design.
"One of the highlights was that the team from Superdry bought in a most brilliant range of artwork, clothing, accessories and original design work."
Superdry staff who visited the school included head of design Laura Nutter, accessories designer Terri Appleton, women's wear designer Lucy Royal, branding designer Jamie Cook and graphic designer Matt Charman.
