JN Bank, a strong member-owned Jamaican bank committed to the financial success and growth of every member, approached the Fashion department at Lambeth College to design the uniform for their newly opened branch in Brixton.

Students on the Level 2 Art and Design (Fashion and Textiles) course were given a fantastic opportunity to show and prove their creative streak by designing their uniform and needless to say, they did exceedingly well. They worked alongside local seamstress Novelette Jennifer Ellis and course leader Karina Goulding to create the amazing final piece that the staff members later went on to wear.

The Art and Design students approached the project with professionalism, striking talent and a willingness to accommodate JN Bank's requests and after many brainstorms and ideas, a sleek uniform was birthed. The staff at JN Bank were completely impressed with all the effort and contributions the students made.

Throughout the project they demonstrated professionalism, pure talent and skills in the art of designing. They are such lovely individuals who were flexible, adapting and being quite resourceful whenever a challenge presented itself. Gems to work with! They were accommodating to every change and request and had a positive attitude and pleasant disposition throughout. They have certainly illustrated their competence and that they were up to the task. I thoroughly enjoyed working with the team, they are true team players always supporting each other. They worked really hard and were fully committed to the goals of the assignment. They went above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of the project was well executed at every stage in the journey.

Karina Goulding, course leader was quite helpful and involved in every step of the journey with us and was instrumental in coordinating everything and guiding the students’ input. Her commitment, time, effort and dedication to the project was truly amazing and sincerely appreciated. A big thank you to Karina for going above and beyond the call of duty throughout the entire process.

Black quotation mark clip artI was very pleased that as a company focused on communities, we chose to have students from Lambeth College design our uniforms, which is perhaps the first of many community engagements for the new U.K. Bank. Having the students visit to present their designs and to interact with the JN Bank team is perhaps one of the highlights of the process and for me was an important step in connecting with the next generation.
