These Glamorous Student Fashions From the Glasgow School of Art in 1953

The Glasgow School of Art is Scotland's only public self-governing art school offering university level programmes and research in architecture, fine art and design. The school is housed in one of Glasgow's most famous buildings, often considered the masterpiece of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and built between 1897 and 1909.

According to Retronaut, in 1953 the British magazine Picture Post featured the school's annual charity fashion show. Students wore their own creations, posing in the school and on the streets, where they collected money to be distributed among various local charities.
