LEEDS Arts University students have put their creative talents to stylish use in aid of Martin House Children’s Hospice.

The first year fashion students have been helping Martin House Makers, an ‘upcycling’ project that sees volunteers producing wearable fashions from donated clothes that have gone unsold in the hospice’s charity shops.

The Martin House shop on Otley Road, in Headingley, yesterday hosted a showcase of some of the outfits made by the students using items that would otherwise have been destined for landfill.
